    Default 1st Attempt For Old Drum

    Had a couple of first today. 5 miles from the house at 4:45 is the 1st time in 41 years of driving I ever hit a deer. Nothing major, just need a new front bumper. Put the boat in around 6:30 and couldn't resist fishing a few docks on the way out to the river. Caught 4 flounder with one keeper. Now my 1st attempt at catching an old drum. Once we hit the river it was only about 15 minutes later my popping cork went under. A few minutes later I had my 1st old drum in the boat. Measured 46". A day to remember.

    Sounds a lot like my first trip catching old drum. Except the wildlife I ran into was a bear on the way home. Great fish man. Congratulations. Hopefully the first of many.

    Deja vu. Saturday morning 5am I left to go after old drum. On the way, I hit a deer (& thought of you). I put my kayak in. Thought I would troll as I made my way out. Snagged and broke rod tip on 1st cast. Fished 4 hours with no bites. I was about to quit and then caught a 45" on a half of pinfish. Despite the horrible start, it was worth it and cant wait to go again.

    Wow, hope you didn't get much damage! I ALWAYS have my brights on at night for that reason. For some stupid reason I didn't hit the switch after the last oncoming car. Live and learn. Congrats on the fish!
