A Monarch Gill Just Under 11".....Dark Knight 7/5/2013

Just an incredible bite in recent weeks.....This 21 ounce gill hit a white/blue Gronaw Grass Shrimp tipped with a live "june bug".......a great bait that is often readily available after dark this time of year......

Thanks Jim.....another grass shrimp victim......that white with the blue collar has become another favorite of mine in the brackish waters.......We figured out today that we caught over 1,200 gills on the Gronaw Grass Shrimp line since June the 10th................Spectacular baits.........

Wow! What a fish!

For about thirty seconds I thought I had a really special gill on as this guy powered up after hook set......he briefly wrapped some submerged brush before making a flash for open water and playing right into my strengths......I was anchored when I caught this gill and my line broke on one of the anchor ropes on the following cast.....All in all a great battle and we hope to see this guy again in the future.....
