I realize there is not a topic for Black Drum but its the closest thing to a Redfish that I know of.

Picked this fish up about 10 years ago in the NMZ on a totally tricked out canoe. Estimated weight to be about 25 pds. It took about 25 minutes to bring it boatside. I had another one on for over 40 minutes that I eventually put too much pressure on and it popped the fly!!!!

Alot has changed up there with areas you can fish due to 9/11, but it is still a hot fishery!
Blacks and Reds up to 40 pds!!!! Big schools with tails wagging everywhere!

Could be a great road trip someday.

Perfect eating size.They pull harder than reds just not as fast.WE used to chase them in March back in Texas on light tackle the largest was 48lbs.They put a size limit on them and I hear they are catching monsters pretty regular.Lots of fun.

Please note Chef Mike's, uh, dark hair.  Gee where did all the grey go?  It's either Greek Formula or this is one of Mike's antique pics...

:capn:

May lurkers be fired by Donald Trump.  At least Chef Mike has hair...
