I've fished my entire life and never caught one of these, and never actually seen one in person. I know many consider it a trash fish but I'm just happy that I can mark it off my list. I'll tell you what...those suckers are strong as hell, fight to the death and are not hard to clean, contrary to popular opinion.
Mouth of Tchefuncte River in Madisonville around 5pm...Kayak, popping cork 1' under, market shrimp, Kahle hook, PowerPro.
27" long, 12" girth, about 6-7lbs.
