You can use shrimp,cutbait,or sandfleas and catch either red or black drum when they are "pups".. You can catch larger black and red drum with those baits at times,although when they are full grown,as a rule,red drum like cut mullet as well as menhaden,and will go for a bucktail or Hopkins as well.. Big black drum like clams,and will occasionally go for a bucktail,but not as often.. Crabs would be on the menu for both big and small... jmho..

For big black drum, surf clams. Make sure they are fresh! Big red drum looove the mullet either cut or live lined. But again keep it fresh!hooked.gif

Clams and half-cut blue crabs for big drum. For puppy-drum (smaller redfish), I have great success with a chartreuse gulp with red jig-head. This used to work great in VA for redfish up to 35".

Bass Assassin/Saltwater Assassin Sea Shads 4"-6" in various colors dependent upon water color. Calcascieu Brew and Cajun Croaker are two favorites for clear to reasonably clear water but in tannic stained or muddy water then Candy Corn fished on the lightest jig heads you can get by with. I prefer 1/8oz.
