Delaware Bay Black Drum Fishing

Post  Captain Ahab on 5/10/2014, 12:30 pm

Set up my drum / taug / cod rod (Atlas Kona on a 8' Star Plasma MH) and headed out to the coral beds for some night time fighting with the monster of the dark

Bite was slow until after midnight when we managed to get a steady pick up to around 50 lbs.  These fish get much larger but we all went home with a dinner and then some  - surf clams and sand flea sandwiches was teh bait.

Got to hear them booming under the boat which is always a spring time favorite sound


fished With Capt/ Rodney on the Fish Whisperer out of IRI (We meet him in Lewes)

Best bite was later at the turn of the ebb tide into the flow - clams and sand flea sandwich is the new secret weapon
