NOLA Bank Fishing checking

Something told me to hit the Lakefront on Monday evening, so I did.

Lucky me!

Caught my first slot red on a chunk of cut mullet, carolina rigged on the bottom using a 5/0 J hook with a 24' mono lead under a swivel and a 2oz no-roll sinker above the swivel.

I'm not a charter captain, I don't even own a boat. I caught this fish without a sponsorship deal, polarized sunglasses, a fish finder, gps, sea tow membership, a go-pro with remote control, casting platform..

heck, I didn't even buy ice.

I started fishing less than 9 months ago. Normal dudes can catch fish.

Nice fish. But posting what you posted makes you seem like a much bigger jerk then the people you are attempting to bash.
It's a redfish. They are caught off of the bank regularly. You did not find the magical unicorn. Redfish are pretty much one of the easiest saltwater fish to catch. Granted, there have been times where I have been in my boat, PRAYING to catch one. But to catch ONE and then act like you did the impossible and then to have the audacity to call out people, some people that are PAID to wear what they wear, PAID to do what they do....that's pretty low.
Nice fish. Enjoy it. Catch plenty more. But please, do it without faulting people that love cacthing them as much as you do.....

I wish somebody would pay me a bunch of money to wear their gear and go fishing.

I'm glad for you, I LOVE bank fishing as much as anybody. Don't start trash talking after just one fish though.

Catching 1 redfish and bragging is like having a 3 inch wiener and bragging about it...

Catching a red fish on cut bait in the lake with river water, cold front and flooding is like winning the lottery for sure. But try to so it again. At neighbors camp there were a ton of fisherman talking about catching fish. I had just purchased a new spinner bait. Walked up and told the guys watch this bait catch fish. One cast 2 pound bass. They all said do it again no way left laughing. But have made that cast a million times since this and never happen again lol.
