Big red in the Stono


My biggest red on artificial in the Stono. I took the wife out yesterday afternoon looking for eagles and happened to see some birds going crazy at the edge of the marsh. Well, I always carry a rod with me in the boat, so I snuck over and made one cast into a little creek no wider than 3' or so and got hammered. 20 minutes later, the wife scooped him up in the net. I'm guessing 32"/33", something around there, but it was a hoss and healthy.

Pink mirrorlure suspending bait, but he would have hit anything thrown in his direction. I'm pretty sure. I'll have to pull the eagle pictures off the big camera, but they are around this time of year now that the boat traffic has subdued.
