"Get Hooked on New York"

Some schoolies and a giant, lost fish. Details
Name:Some schoolies and a giant, lost fish.
Created By:jessekayboston
Details:My bone colored Sp minnow got destroyed and I was amped to find a new one in the mail today. I threw on my gear and went to break this puppy in.

Wind was perfect, waves were ripping, and the fish were biting intermittently in the afternoon. Landed a few schoolies in a matter of minutes and then the bite went dead.

I moved down the beach and found a nice rip. Threw for an hour and got a massive strike. This fish fought for a solid 15-20 minutes. As I tried to get my feet on ground because the sand and rocks were tripping me up, I could see her. Soon, I had her within my pole's reach and she made one final dash in 6 inches of water, breaking free. I pulled up my lure to find the hooks bent all the way open. She was at least 50", maybe more and my heart broke.

Let this be a lesson to anyone fishing the sp minnows... Change those split rings and hooks before you throw. Now instead of holding a giant bass, I just have some schoolies to show you. :(
