It was plenty cool outside but the Reds were biting. Gotta love winter reds!

Congrats on that nice red. Living in central PA all our water is fresh. Right now it is pretty hard too, hard enough I saw several Amish children skating on it on Saturday. I have never tried ice fishing figuring that it would be a lot of work chopping a hole big enough for my boat.

Never fished for em Leo but that's a nice looking fish ya got there. I know they're good eating and wondered if they taste similar to any other type of saltwater fish?

Phil I heard they taste like chicken. Chicken of the sea, no that was tuna.

The are similar too a lot of different white fleshed fish. If you like Catfish and Bass you'll like Redfish. There is a slot limit on them in most states (minimum and maximum size) so be sure you know if you plan to keep one. This one fell right under legal max. Had a pile of spots too. Nine on one side and five on the other. The most spots I'd ever had on one before was eight total. Typically they only have one per side.

Fish Commission thinks that we lost at least 40% of our inshore snook during the freeze..Anyways I'll post some up as I catch them this year Posted Image

2" Rootbeer Gulp shrimp on a 1/4 ounce jig.

That's a tragedy if you lost that many snook. :( We don't have snook here so I'd have to go to Florida to chase them. Haven't fished for them in years.

The crabs work pretty good here too. They are a good thing to have when they don't want the shrimp.

Grats Leo!-that is a good eating size! We have a place on the coast where me and Frank frequently catch 40-50" reds--fun to catch but not worth a hoot as far as eating.
