    Caught these two red fish while vacationing in Pensacola last week. They were both caught at the Pier, awesome fighting fish, pulled drag good....the fish my son is holding up was what I used for bait.

    damn ironcat that is one huge redfish. You need to get a replica made of it and hang it in your bedroom (mouth open of course). But seriously I can not wait to go to the Ohio and catch striper.
