Dad's First Red

Been off from work for a couple weeks with my new baby boy, finally got a free morning. Took the Old Man out to the 'Goon, with hopes to FINALLY land his first Red. Weather started out blustery, to say the least (15-20), with some pre-dawn showers. We waited out the drizzle and tredged down a forgotten path scouted out by IRLyRiser..............


Dad led off the morning with his FIRST RED!!! A nice, fat 23"er, smashed a red/white top pup. Congratulations, Dad!!!

I tied into a few more reds, released 5, all in the slot. Also picked up a nice trout for the cooler. Bait of choice was the Redfish Magic.

Dad decided to leave the lee shore and get windy, and what a great decision that turned out to be. After losing a nice red on the Exude, a follow-up cast produced a powerful strike and the Old Man took his first Redfish-powered kayak ride! After a lengthy fight, a 33” crimson linebacker posed for a picture. Great fun and great memories.

Yes, retirement is a great thing, we'll be there before we know it. BTW, I hooked up the GPS to Google Earth, the tracklog shows that the big fish towed him 1/4 mile.....with his anchor deployed!!
