Craig Domko caught this 35" beast of a redfish off the beach a few weeks ago. Talk about a good day, sun, surf, sand and a nice fish to land.

Luck of the Irish (Pompano)
Consider yourself lucky to catch this fish which is not really a pompano at all but rather in the mojarra family. They prefer protected areas such as bays, lagoons and estuaries, especially around underwater Emerald Isles (seagrass meadows).
