Water Temp. Cools, Drum Bite Heats Up

Trip Info

The Catch
Black Drum

Right off the bat we saw redfish moving around in the shallows but they were acting very finicky. The water was so clear I even saw sea trout off the bow of the boat multiple times.  Ended up with 3 reds and a nice sheepshead on live shrimp.  Tried one last spot right before the end of the trip and got this nice 24” black drum that put up an awesome fight.  The drum bite is always more productive when the water cools down in the winter.
