A buddy text'd me a pic this week of a 35# redfish saying it was caught off Chatham by guys vertical jigging for bass in the commercial fleet. Saw it posted on Riverview B&T website too, anyone know the story? Pretty cool catch for NE waters. Maybe a State record too, that's a pretty good sized redfish! Congrats to the angler.


After a hurricane in '85 I was on a boat that caught an amberjack in Nantucket Sound, and I remember reading a story about a tarpon caught from a Harwichport jetty in the early 80's too.
