OK, I am sure Chip cannot wait until I post his picture with his FIRST Red Drum from the surf. I made plans to take Chip out for a little surf action last week. I picked a day and we headed out. Conditions were perfect IMO. Hope we can do it again sometime Chip.

Congrads brother on your first

The fish went 52" with a 30" girth.

just busting on ya, HUGE FISH.

In the past year I started "dipping" all my fish before the pic and the release, only takes about 5 seconds and makes a big difference in a memorable shot...keep it in mind for your next huge drum!

So how bout a fight story? <ACRONYM title=Virginia>VA</ACRONYM> Fish?
