One hot summer night, while fishing in Pamlico Sound NC, my line began screaming like a freight train. I fought with all my might and thirty minutes later I landed this beautiful 60 lb Red Drum. Iām 6ā3ā so you can see the size of this fish. I ended up catching 4 more drum that night between 25 and 52 pounds. Released the fish and treated myself to a tasty Crown & cola.
