Sweet!

Re: Big Un's........

Nice reds!!

Re: Big Un's........

That size drum is fun to catch. Nice fish.

Re: Big Un's........

Good times Ron! We'll do it again soon.

Re: Big Un's........

Wow, that water looks gorgeous!  Great job, fellows! emot_toast

Mind if I ask what flies?

Re: Big Un's........

Catch,

I was throwing a weighted black and red seauducer...LOTS OF WEIGHT big eyes and lead wire wraps tied on a Gamakatsu SC15 1/0 hook, that's the same fly I threw when Devin and I slaughtered the big bulls back in Nov.  Barret was throwing a dark olive crab with a marabou tail...lots of weight too..... I know someone else doing real well on heavy black flies right now too.

Re: Big Un's........

Sweeeeeet!  Those are some very nice fish right there.  I so need to fix my steering on my boat so I can get after those big uns.

Re: Big Un's........

Awesome pics. Nice to see some folks are still fishing.  One month away for me but getting closer.

Catch, the water was beautiful everywhere we explored! I'm a big fan of this area...big fan. I was throwing a black/golden olive EP permit crab fly that I tied on a #1 hook with medium eyes. The tail has some black flash and barred olive grizzly marabou. I'm in nart Louisiana all week, but when I get back I'll take a pic.

Re: Big Un's........

Found a few more this afternoon. We even found over slot fish on some shallow flats (less than a foot). The warm weather really had these fish riled up, and we were treated some insane takes. The water was a light emerald color and beautifully clear. We enjoyed a great day in the marsh.

Re: Big Un's........

Wow Barret, that is a hog!

Re: Big Un's........

WOW Barrett, what a pig.  Did you get a weight on him?

Re: Big Un's........

The fish weighed over 30lbs and easily bottomed out my 30lb boga grip. I believe it wouldve been a top 5 fish, but there's no way I'd kill a fish to put my name on a list.

Re: Big Un's........

REDZILLA LIVES!

Barret, that's an awesome fish.  Unless a fish makes the top 5, I don't enter it into the records.  A #8 or #9 fish will have 2-3 years on the list. Judge that version the number of baby reds such a healthy fish can make.  C'mon, Redzilla, make us some babies!   emot_wink

Re: Big Un's........

Those are great pictures! Great fish! How long did it take to land the monster on fly tackle, I've caught 35#+ on spinning gear that took twenty minutes and more to land.
If you don't mind me asking, which marsh were you fishing, the water is gin clear!

Congratulations on the beast, Beautiful fish Barret! The fishing world needs more men like yourself, a good picture like that is better and longer lasting than a spot in the record book.

Oh, I'm handy with camera and can push pole a boat if you ever need someone to take pictures of you with redfish.

TFO?! That was below the belt, Ron! emot_surprise


Kirk- Anytime man. Looks like I'm in the market for another fishing buddy. You can tie bent back seaducer's, right?
