March madness continues here in eastern NC,had the chance to get on the water with some great people this month and chase the red drum around a bit.
This month alone i have personally seen at least 400+ red drum caught from the kayak's and been on the bent rod end of a lot of them including my very first red drum on a fly.
Me and a friend of mine Eddie (yakattack flyflinger) Manning got the chance to hit a creek where i have been following a school of slot size drum around.
Eddie wanted to try a fly rod drum so he asked me what fly i told him a pink and white clouser should do but the hole was close to 10 ft deep and he had to get the fly way down low.
With a sinking line and a beaded fly he began to toss his fly to the opposite side of the creek where i suggested he should try and on about his fourth try Red on,after landing it it was close to 21 inches not huge but a respectable red for sure.
Eddie asked me if i would like to try and even though i was dieing to i really didn't want to because i knew if i caught the addiction of a fly rod red would be fueled with that hook up.
We ended the day fishing cut baits and landing close to 30 drum from 2 holes and it was truly a great day with a great friend,one i look forward to doing again soon.
