Holdens First big drum – Oriental NC


7 year old Holden Berry caught this massive old drum while fishing near the mouth of the Neuse River. We had heavy lines out for these fish and Holden had a small rod and reel with 10lb test for catching croakers while fishing was slow. This monster of a fish grabbed Holdens line and took off. His older brother Conner helped hold the rod while his granddad held on to the back of his life jacket so the fish wouldn’t pull him overboard. It was a great catch and a great live release.
