February 4, 2005 - Huge Black Drum
It was a cold, windy day at the North Jetty. We did not catch any Reds. Caught only 2 Black drum - but one was an absolute WHOPPER. As best as I could tell - he was about 60lbs. He was caught with 12lb test line on a Mitchell FRS4000 reel and Shimano Rod. It was an incredible battle - under the boat - around the boat - away from the boat. It was an amazing fight!
