day started slow @ the cut. first hour no bites nothin, so we moved a little south to shallower water where all the other boats were. within 30 mins my buddy gets a light nibble..... FISH ON!!! 30 mins and several 50 yrd runs later we got it to the boat and measured 70"!!!!

had to pull anchor for that one! toughed it out at that spot for a bit longer but nothin else, headed south to buoy #27 and landed a 30" shaker.

water was murky as hell, only like 3" visibility in the brown stuff. we were usin grass and ghost, both went for the grass* 8-)

That is a big one for your boat. How many feet is your boat? and how many pounds is your achor. I am thinking of getting a 12' aluminum.

13 ft boat, 6 ft fish! anchor maybe 12 pound mushroom type with a few feet of hefty chain. works ok, but when the tides are rippin good it does come loose
