CONTRIBUTED Gary Wall caught this stout redfish Christmas Eve in the surf on North Beach. It measured 46 inches in length and 38 inches in girth. He estimates it weighed 45 to 50 pounds. He fought the fish on 12-pound test mono. It ate a chunk of fresh shrimp. The family was spending its holiday here, from their home in Virginia. The fish, he says, was quickly released in good shape. Jim Sutton is on vacation this week. His fishing report returns Jan. 12.
