1 fish caught | Lunker: 40lb Red Drum using a Shrimp

Put in at Joe's Bayou in the late morning.  We saw a bunch of birds and dolphins at the mouth of the cove and decided to anchor the boat and give it a shot.  After casting about 10 times, I hooked into this beast!  We actually had to pick up the anchor & chase her w/ the boat so she didn't run me completely out of line!  After finally bringing her in, we decided to go over to the Destin bridge to try to get some sheepshead.  After not getting any decent bites, we decided to try near the rocks at the mouth of the E Pass to no avail.  We were trying shrimp, bull minnows, crank baits, and spoons, but weren't having any luck.  I'm just happy I finally landed a bull red!!

I took the kayak out and caught 2 specks and a redfish in lake pippin in niceville. Used the mirrolure catch 5 series 3. The water is a little murky from last weeks rain and wind. Early morning is your best bet for the big ones.
