This is a strange one

Postby Ctuk » Thu Aug 29, 2013 3:54 pm

Caught this one Tuesday at Swan Quarter. He picked up a Gulp shrimp attached to my line. Big surprise for me and for him.

At first I thought it was a big Black Sea Bass...but then decided it was a Triple Tail. 22 inches, 7 pounds (on a old cheap scale). Released him

Great fish! And Brian is right. Best ceviche I have ever eaten. Congrats on the catch.

awesome catch. Did not know they could be inshore, but that is part of the fun of fishing - fish don't read the rulebook.
