The Catch
Black Drum


The water is cooler, as are the days.  However, the bite is HOT!  The drum have now settled South and are taking our baits in the South Fl Glades..  On a recent trip, my new friend from Boca, Jeff, fought and brought a 20 lb. Black drum to the boat.  He did so, on the IRT 400 DD reel paired with a Black Hole 6’8’’ Charter series Carbon Fiber Rod.  That combo made short order of the fight but it was indeed a GREAT fight.
The rig consisted of 15 lb Power PRO braid, paired with a circle hook, 40 lb floru carbon leader and fresh “four finger” crab.

Call us and get in on the Glades winter bite!
