    it took me and my wife working together a total of 2 and ahalf hours and 2 and ahalf miles to land him what a blast she had to do all the deck stuff and run trolling motor to stay with fish till he tired out. so both got a workout she was also trying to snap pics incase the line broke

    Sweet fish. Where abouts in Florida are you? My uncle took me out deep-sea fishing for the first time this summer. We ended up about 40 miles off the coast of Stuart. Caught some small blackfin tuna(which hes never seen that late into the season before) and lost a sailfish. Can't wait to go back.

    Very nice. I need to move closer to the ocean so I can do some real fishing. We don't really have anything special here, just channel cats, stripers, the usuals. Gets boring after awhile, lol.

    Hmm, I think its one fish only 40"+

    just kidding, but seriously, our main fish up here is the Fluke. Back when I was young you could keep I think 7 fish of at least 16". Now its 1 fish over 21.5", I think.

    Yeah. It was only 7 or 8 years ago that you could keep a 16" Flounder and I don't even know what the limit was because it was HIGH! Now it's up to 21" I think... and the limit is 2 I think.
    To the men and women of the US military, thank you

    My brother-in-law used to live in Bradenton, FL, and I loved to visit him. We went fishing all over every day. A few trips ago we were on a boat that we rented in the Sarasota bay and I caught a 35" redfish on my smallmouth setup with 6 lb. Test. A storm came up soon after I hooked into it and I fought it for around forty minutes on a bucking boat with rain pouring down. It was so awesome! Got him next to the boat and got the hook out and let him swim away. Last time down I caught two four foot sharks and some nice speckled trout. Too bad the construction buisness dried up and he moved back to PA. I miss my vacation home.....nice fish, man!!
