Wopper



Ten-year-old Tommy Coleman of Evans spent 20 minutes playing tug-of-war with this giant redfish while fishing with his dad, David Coleman, near St. Simons Island.

The redfish, also known as spottail bass, weighed 38 pounds and was released after this photo. Pictured, with Tommy, is the boat's owner, Jay Childers.
