Big Drum

Patience. The sharks (and stingrays) are hopefully in the open water, and we'll hopefully be able to get on them later in the week. And for now I really don't mind catching red drum - I'd only caught three before this trip.

Me and Roger did manage 3 little sandbar sharks, the biggest one above in pearlescent purple - wouldn't mind seeing one about six or seven foot. Then I landed two hard fighting red drum - great fights, long runs and they never give up - especially the second one...

  1. Nice one mate, looking good! Conditions appear to be alright now.

    1. Hoping to get to some offshore coast over the next couple of days. Still muddy and water is a bit fresh but getting better all the time...
