Dr. Mark Pucek walks away from his hospital duties to work on his own health on the Laguna Madre. Here he is unhooking another large red. Several of them were oversized this day. Again, it was all bottom bumping tails on these non active fish. It was their first time also to use braided line and they got used to it pretty quick.

The bite was so soft it was almost imperceptible even with braid, but once they figured out they were hooked, it was strip city. Very strong & angry fish...great fun.
