Here's a few shots of a friend of mine with a big Black Drum he caught yesterday just off the beach in Ft. Myers Florida. He didn't have a scale but looks to be well over #50. Caught on light tackle too, took[img=a><a href=http://www.stripersonline.com/image/id/3102910/width/600/height/450' alt='450'> about a half hour to get him to the boat..... He was released....rollcast

nice catch and release. do black drum fight? or is it just dead weight

 

It's a little of both if that makes sense. They can use the current to their advantage. The big ones do pull good, and they will break inferior equipment.

On a boat you can stay with them on light gear, but from shore a big one like that will toast light gear.... we fish for them around bridges and if you don't have gear to match their weight (turn and tired them)

forget it :D

 

But it is still fun......
