Went to Fort Phantom yesterday with the intent to fish some shallow mud flats. Ended up getting a ton of takedowns, but couldn't hook up with anything. Still dont know what the problem was (Im blaming the fact I was using octopus instead of octopus circle hooks)

After not catching anything almost all day, I decided to drift back towards the boat ramp after the wind finally decided it was gonna stick around, and I picked up my new PB. Not sure how much he weighed or how long he was, but Im guessing 34-38"

Caught him somewhere in the 13-15foot range on a smaller piece of chicken soaked in dead red.

A good rule of angling philosphy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.

I bet the other takedowns were gar. They hang together.

That was my thought too! But I didnt see any rolling, and none of the baits had teeth marks on them... Im just happy I hooked up with this dude, and that Im planning on going back again soon
