Big Summer Redfish Off Pine Island
Michael Shopenn from Connecticut is quickly becoming one of my favorite anglers. He and his wife Gail have been on exactly two fishing trips in their entire lives, both with me this week, and have had fantastic luck each time. Today was Michael's day to brag with his first redfish, an overslot 33 incher that ate just the head of a shrimp under the bushes near Jug Creek. This was one of those rare fish that I actually had to chase down with the motor. Excellent work, Mike.
