Headed down to Oriental today solo to try to catch some old drum. Didn't have any mullet so I netted a bunch of pogies, mostly peanuts and had a rod to use fishbites to catch bait. First spot, nothing but a couple sea mullet for bait. ended up moving after a couple hours and got anchored up and 4 rods out, about 5 min later fish on. got her in the boat and some quick pics and she took off like a rocket when I set her in the water, didn't even give me a chance to revive her at all. About five min later the drag on my abu 7000 started screaming, another fish in the boat. Only two for the day other than some mullet and a few grey trout, but a beautiful day and a couple nice fish, cant complain!

Thanks Scott, wasn't bad, right place right time. almost forgot....your "depth" rule paid off, was 1 ft deeper, although the baits were around where you told me.
