black drum fishing

Black drum action continues to be outstanding in the Indian River this week. We’ve had a group of larger fish move in from what we had previously been catching. These new fish are in the 30 to 50 pound class. We are having to tackle up to pull them away from the structures they are holding on using our cobia rods instead of our typical flats fishing rods. Most of these fish are hitting the Saltwater Assassin redfish colored Sea Shad tails rigged on a ¼ to ½ ounce jig head. Live shrimp and cut crab are also working on these big fish. Bull reds over 40 inches long are mixed in with the drum on some days. Along the beach, cobia, tripletail and giant drum are the main targets. When the seas allow we are outside chasing those species as well. If you are looking for a really great rod bending experience, you need to get out with us in the next few weeks before these fish are gone.
