There has been quite a few reports lately of puppy drum and lots of them. So I decided I was going to head out and give it a go. I called a couple of local fishing buddies and got a few heck yeahs and a few maybes. Either way I hitting my local hotspot bright and early Saturday morning.
Today I was joined by my buddy Richie Bekolay from Hook Line & Sinker (Richie's Report). Richie has already been on the puppy drum the last few weeks and we quickly decided where we were going to start.
Immediatley I got a blowup on my Pink Skitterwalk but I missed that fish. The very next cast I had what I thought was a little striper popping at the lure. After a few retreives I had a little better blowup and set the hook into this nice 23" Specked Trout. Richie took a few quick pics for me and I got her back in the water. This was a good sign because I haven't heard many reports on decent specks being caught.
