Black Drum:


A close cousin of Redfish, Black Drum are aptly named for they somehow make a deep rattling noise when alarmed.  Amazingly this can often be heard or even felt in a boat.  A stealthy approach and good positioning by guide Chris Myers meant we could lay out long casts to reach a shoal of feeding drum.  And once hooked these highly prized fish punched well above their weight.  Anyone interested in experiencing the diverse fishing on offer in Florida should contact:
