  7. Last day in Florida so we hit the pier again. The bluerunners (hardtails) were everywhere and they fight so hard. My cousins highlight of the day was a big remora ...more on a gotcha but mine was this huge 17" bluerunners on a plug. It hit really hard suicide jigging (vertical) near pilings and took off. I thought it was a small jack crevalle till I got it up, tons of fun and nice catch. I'll be back

  8. Last day on vacation on the panhandle of Florida. Surf is still full of snot grass so we went back to the pier. Caught a bunch of small bluerunners and alewifes ...more on a sabiki rig and lots of Spanish mackerel, bluerunners, and my cousin got one big remora on gotcha plugs. This is then only pier I've been to where lures out fish bait. Lots of people hooked into big tarpon, not a single one landed.

    Spanish Mackerel

      Oh, that's a lot safer. I recently took a treble in the hand. Not fun.
    4. Sean Wilms 0
      @lhp9 I'm actually not lipping it I'm holding it with pliers, it's just the angle the picture was taking. I've had to many close calls already with ...more a trashing fish and a plug

      You have to be really brave to lip a fish with a crank still in its mouth! Lol! Nice catches, I'm jealous.
