    Default old drum weekend

    i have been dreaming about catching an old drum for a year now. my buddy and I were finally able to get a weekend away this weekend. we have been planning for a couple months now. the weather ended up being great for us which i have been really worried about since we booked the hotel.
    we headed out at 2:30 friday morning, stop by the tackle shop to pick up a few things and make it to the water before sunrise. the parking lot was already half full when we arrived. we get everything loaded up and head out just before first light. when we arrive at our first spot, there are already about 10 boats there. after about 30 mins, there are about 20 boats there. we decided this wasnt going to work out so went searching for another spot. nothing going on there and the wind picked up so we move again and find a spot that's a little more protected from the wind. we start throwing the popping corks and I hook up after about 20 mins. this is my first time and i had images in my head of a violent assault on top of the water so when the line just went tight, i thought i was hung on something (then i realized that wasnt possible w/ a popping cork in 8' of water). the fight was on then, i have never caught anything that big on a rod and reel before. that one measured 48 1/2", put her back in and on the next cast, my buddy hooked up, 36" male.

    over the next 2 days, we landed 5 more and lost 2. they were b/w 44 and 49 1/2". it was a great weekend and i am absolutely amazed we were able to catch what we did. i had low expectations for the weekend since the area is just so big. i would have been happy w/ just 1.
