Big Red Fish Caught From Pier

Fairhope, Al.

Fairhope pier
A man struggled on the end of the pier for about three minutes to reel in a large red fish. (video below)

"The red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus), also known as channel bass, redfish, spottail bass or simply reds, is a game fish that is found in the Atlantic Ocean from Massachusetts to Florida and in the Gulf of Mexico from Florida to Northern Mexico.[1] It is the only species in the genus Sciaenops. The red drum is a cousin to the black drum (Pogonias cromis), and the two species are often found in close proximity to each other; they can interbreed and form a robust hybrid, and younger fish are often indistinguishable in flavor.[2]"

That's a big fish. Cooked right, it will be really delicious. Caught many of those off of private piers years ago, not so many now.
