Beat The Drum

A blustery day and a hungry drum gets a little shrimp for a snack before being revived and released .

Windy day, black drum.

Jeff Gartland caught this 23 lb black drum on a shrimp while fishing with friends Tom and Chic near Rattlesnake Island.

Shrimp wins again!

Or maybe the shrimp lost, but it’s still the best bait. Tom caught this giant black drum with a shrimp off a Cedar Key oyster bar while sheltering from a 15-20 knot north wind.

Cedar Key snook are big!

Small craft advisories were in effect but that didn’t stop the bite . Tom caught this 33”snook at low tide, with a north wind. He was fishing in 2’ of water on the edge of an oyster bar using live shrimp on a jig.
