This monster redfish deserves a crown because this fish was the ultimate redemption. Just last month I fished the same spot for two days without even a bite. This trip I was with my little brother and he had two small fish in the boat before I had even baited my hook. Needless to say I was motivated. First cast nothing, second cast I landed the near 40 pound monster.
