Entries in black drum (5)
Here's another case of "I couldn't said better myself."
Chesapeake Bay Black Drum caught on an 11 weight fly rod. Fish was 92 pounds and landed in 45 minutes caught on a black half and half on the rocks. 1 of 2 fish landed that day and biggest I believe ever caught on a fly in the Bay. Leader was 6 feet of 40lb fluorocarbon so not in contention for IGFA record books. Thought you might like this as a slab of the month!
Caught by Colby Trow owner of Mossy Creek Fly Fishing shop in Harrisonburg, VA in August on the Chesapeake Bay. Also pictured Colby Trow's girlfriend Jessica Tomey.

Fished the LA Marsh this weekend out of the Port Sulphur area. Our guide Kirby LaCour poled back up into a stiff wind so I could have a shot at this 41# monster black drum. Even though the sun was sparse and the wind was up these guys tails could be seen from 200' out. The reds were slow but the blackees were partying. This was the largest of 5 blacks we caught ranging from 22# to 41#. The weather was windy and cool but we still had a great time.
