It's all about tight line

The Catch
Black Drum

Started off running offshore to find some fishy activity, ran into some scattered weeds in multiple depths. Never took long for tight line, but it was Bonita every spot we stopped. Each time we would set up and get the lines in the water, it seemed like seconds before all lines were screaming! Didn’t have any luck finding our main species ( mahi & sails) but looking back at the end of the day, it was still a great time on the water. Came in shortly after to some snook spots where we pulled up some nice underslots as well as one 33”. All catch and release!
I think the best part of the day was site fishing on the beach side where I saw this nice shadow approaching us maybe 50 yards away. Threw some sardines thinking it was a fat snook; after three good casts, we switched to a DOA shrimp hoping it would be the ticket. It seemed like the shrimp had no chance once it was places 5 feet away from the shadow. Emily hooked up on her first black drum and it was a nice slot .
Sometimes it just about having a great time breaking the plan and today was one of those days.
