Default Re: Saltwater Fish Photos....Post Here!

Got a good sized jack in FL once. Fought him for a couple minutes, he wouldnt give an inch for a long time, just kept pacing the shoreline, swimming back and forth and tugging back when I pulled.

Eventually I thought I had him close enough to shore to snag. I grabbed my rod in the middle, stupidly holding the line against the shaft. As soon as I did, he ran, line couldnt give, snapped off my Ultra Shrimp and went on his merry way.

I think the worst thing about it for me was that I lost the fly he went after since I only had one and it apparently worked pretty well.
