I caught this Redfish, or Puppy Drum, in late October, 2013. In the photo I took, he was laying on grass, but I thought the edge of the Surf in the Bay at First Landing Park was a much better setting, so I painted that using several reference pics I took in the Park. The lure in the fish’s mouth is one of the plugs my brother makes.

This painting style makes a nice substitute for a mounted fish and looks good on a wall above or around where your rods and other tackle are displayed.
