Weekly Report: 9/6-9/12

This was an interesting week as The Last Hurrah saw some surprising species!  On Wednesday evening, the guys from BGC hooked two monster Red Drum almost simultaneously.  The fish ripped line off the reels and within a few seconds, they were down to the knots on the reels!  I quickly fired-up the engine and began the chase.  The first redfish, broke the 14-pound test line within a minute or two.  However, the second fish engaged us in a battle that lasted over 1-hour and 45 minutes!  We saw the beast several times alongside the boat.  It was easily 50+ pounds and full of raw power.  Eventually, the light line snapped before we were able to net and release it.   We also had a 14-inch menhaden get wrapped around a line, and caught a silver-side and a juvenile black drum while bait fishing……Crazy week!!  The rockfishing saw both good and slow days and the Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish continued to be good-sized.
