nice redfish

I got out saturday for the first time in about 3 weeks. I found this guy off an island near the mouth of the Sebastian River. The water is still real brown from storm runoff, so sight fishing is poor, but I spotted a school of fish crashing bait in the choppy water washing up against the island. I positioned the boat upwind and drifted in and set my anchor. I flung a live mullet out in the general area, and in about 25 seconds, the line went taught. It was a good fight with several strong runs by the fish. I got him boatside and I was sure he was overslot (greater than 27″ long – must release). But no, he was 26″, so I managed this self portrait using the camera timer, while the boat was rocking up and down. Then put him on ice.
