You were all pretty much in the ballpark. You didn’t fall for the photo trickery, yet you paid proper respect to the redifish in Louisiana. This fish, by the way, was about average size for those we caught last week.

And it weighed 11 pounds, 11 ounces. Unfortunately I did not actually catch the fish on 11-11-11; I caught it two days earlier. It was an amazing trip, as you could tell from Tim’s slide show.
