Site Casting Black Drum
Site casting to black drum on the flats is not one of the easier fishing endeavors. First, spotting them takes a keen eye. The fish has eyes positioned in such a way that they spend a lot of time looking down nosing around on the bottom in search of food. Getting them to eat your bait can be a challenge, so you really have to be able to put the bait directly in their meandering path.
In this In the Spread video, experience meets skill as old school Florida Keys fishing guide Ruben Lee and angler Travis Timilty team up to share how to successfully target black drum on the flats. They discuss and demonstrate how to locate black drum in skinny water, how to determine whether they are feeding, what bait works, positioning your bait in their path, the requisite tackle, reel, tides and conditions, plus so much more.
