The Catch
Black Drum

The last 6 nights of flounder gigging have been up and down, with fast action on one night, and then a slow grind the next. Tide levels have been the biggest factor to success lately, with higher levels or incoming tide being better. Big storms with high winds and rain over the weekend really hurt the water clarity, but it rebounded nicely the last 2 nights. Mud bottom has been best, with more scattered fish holding on hard sand. Fish size has been better, with most fish in the 15-17” range, and a few each night in the 18-19” range. Sheepshead and drum continue to be widely scattered and hard to pin down.
