yeah that is exactly what i heard two weeks ago. LOL.
🤣.. The bait behind my house hasn't even bunched up yet. It's a little behind schedule but nothing really out of the norm.
2 weeks and you'll start seeing more clatter on social media about the bite being on.
It's about like deer hunting, you need to be on their schedule and let it happen rather than trying to make it happen on our schedule. Think of it like your fishing the old drum rut

Fished 9/1/19 and caught 6 in 2.5 hours. All over 39 inches. Caught 4 week before but they were all over 43 inches. I’m sure this storm will mess them up and push them out

we went the Thursday before Labor day somewhere in Hyde County and had one of those evenings. We caught 12 ranging in length from 42 to 46 inches. Used cut Mullet. great time to be alive.
Nice work on the drum. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I've always heard its not good to hold the big drum vertically. Ive always heard you should cradle them.

It wasn’t directed at you, it was directed at the myth that it kills them..... but feel free to find me on the beach or pier this fall and we can hug it out 😬

Little man had one about 30 ish pounds blow up on a spook about an hour before dark this evening. He destroyed it but missed the hooks some how. It was pretty dang cool to see. I did catch a couple of trout while he was sight fishing drum. Water is pretty nasty on outgoing, all the fish were right on the tide seam this evening.
