Old drum coming OUT of the water busting bait! I'm not talking about rolling or waking. I saw 45" fish breaching the surface, heads and backs out of the water. That was cool to see. Anyway, we slipped in close and tossed popping corks and DOA baits at them. My 9 yr old daughter hooked up and proceeded to get her tail whooped. She stuck it out and brought a 45" drum to the boat. Measured her, got a couple pics and watched her swim off. My turn, cork goes down and drag peeling. That fish found the only marker pole in sight on her first run. Game over for me! Sun got up, it got hut and the bait dispersed. Oh well, that one fish and those two smiles will last forever in my memory.
