New Fly Record Red Snapper-Pending Certification
Pending approval by the state the new, fly caught, record Red Snapper will be 11lbs 11oz caught by myself last Monday morning out of Port Mansfield. The bigger fish were suspending off the structure so the Lowrance 111 HD came in handy. I used a HEAVY Scientific Angler sink tip and a Seaguar Premier Fluoro leader to get my hand tied fly down to the fish. The Mustad Circle Streamer hook found a good hold and the fight was on, about 5 minutes later we slipped the beauty into the net for a clean catch.
The week was filled with beautiful weather and plentiful fish, what more could an angler ask for?
