HUGE Black Drum

By Scott Lenox

HUGE Black Drum

Today was the first day in over two weeks that we didn’t have any “measurable” rain in Ocean City.  There was a heavy mist and it was mostly cloudy this morning, but the wind was light and conditions in the bay were very fishable.

I got an awesome submission from Garrett Lewis who has been having some terrific luck surf fishing the Virginia barrier islands this week.  Garrett has made some solo beach trips and others with his Dad, Gary Lewis and his girlfriend Cherith Ferguson.  Garrett and the crew have landed some really nice rockfish and Garrett has landed two HUGE black drum.  One fish was 46″ and 67.4 pounds and the bigger fish was 52 1/4″ and 68 pounds.  All fish were caught on peeler crab on the Virginia barrier islands.

Captain Jeff Coats of Pitboss Fishing took advantage of the nice conditions this afternoon for a little “sun therapy” and drifted some bait in the inlet looking for a keeper striper.  After a while with no bites he switched over to casting Roy Rigs and caught and released five short rockfish….enjoying our Ocean City sky all the while.
