9.0 lb. Red Drum caught by Shelby Ramsey fishing in Florida on 03/07/15
29.0" / 9.0 lb. Red Drum caught by Shelby Ramsey fishing on Saturday March 07, 2015 at 14:30 near Fort Myers Beach in Lee County, Florida (FL), United States North America using a Flats HQ Flatswalker a Topwater Bait

Had a great day on the water Saturday. My partner caught a slam - a trout, redfish, and snook with a couple of jacks thrown in. I spent most of the day poling the boat in skinny water and when we got to one area I was able to make a couple of chunks with a topwater. On the second chunk this stud of a redfish decided to come out and play. Most redfish take a couple of tries at a topwater before getting it ... but this one was just a flash of his back and got it on his first strike. I was fishing 10 lb test on a pretty whippy rod so it took me a few minutes to get him to the boat. And of course he did the run under the boat like all big reds do in skinny water. It was a great ending to what was a great day on the water.
