Default Big Black Drum

Fished with my buddys last night Josh Merritt and Jermaine..We caught this mongo Black Drum at 17th Avenue Train Tressel on a Gulp!..I hooked him 3 nights ago on a Stradic but was only running 6lb line and he got away..He was 42" ..We ended up catching 1 more but he was released....It was not my idea to keep the fish ( I actually tried to release him..ha) but he will be eaten tonight during the football game..My buddy has 4 kids and he said this would be great for the game tonight!

So you hooked him and he got away, then went back and got him again a few days later? That's awesome!
