I have been trying to get a 30in redfish for over 5 years now and my personal best out of the kayak was 24in until today. The morning started slow(alot of the tourney kayakers were in the area) just a lady fish and ready to mount monster catfish. My honeyhole was empty so I did a long paddle to some flats pulled into the shallows and redid my lines and got my head on straight since I was pissed off about the last 1.5hours of nothing. I searched for mullet and potholes in the grass and the day turned quickly. When all was done I had caught 2 trout and 14 redfish(lost at least 5 more). The first two reds were small 17 and 19in then I caught my biggest ever a fat 28incher. This was followed by 11 more and 6 of those were over 24inches. I think the fished were pissed at seeing all of the artificial lures from the kayak tourney and they destroyed my live bait. This day was in my top 3 days of kakak fishing ever. Hope everyone else did even better today. Tight lines

Nice . We caught a bunch of them out there. Snooks reds trouts black drum and even a manatee.

As for the fish being pissed....if you were a fish and chased an easy meal down, gobbled it up
only to find a sharp hook and the stupid feeling of being fooled into biting a piece of plastic....( a friend once told me "redfish are stupid") wouldn't you wanna go and eat some comfort food ....because you're still hungry. Heck yeah they were pissed... Hard Core Baby!

Is that a PINK BOBBER? :laughing: just kidding ya man.

Great day, Todd! Those potholes are THE place for reds in my experience.

Oh, ignore my post in another section asking how you did! :)
