had a friend in town 2day from ft lauderdale. he froze 2 death. he finally went home with the girls which left me and my son trevor. was east of portofino. water was murky. wind was STRONG out of the north. surf was predictably calm close in. couldnt find a flea to save our life. trevor dutifully gets in the water for the flea search. so, we use the old standby of fresh dead shreemps.trev hooks up an 18" blk drum and then i hook into a 29" red. im wearing wading boots and blue jeans trying not to get wet and release this fish at same time. couldnt do it. trev steps in and performs the release. somehow he gets his index finger in the back of the mouth, ouch. nice scrapes from that. but the red swims off none the less for wear. trev then hooks into a 15" blk drum. one more try with the rake andwouldnt you know, trev lands on a bed of fleas. at this point the sun has just set and the wind really picks up now and is blowing at least 25knots out of the north. time to head home.

2 15 and 18" black drum; 1 29" red released.

SORRY, NO PICS!! but yall know what puppy drum and an overslot red look like.

Thanks for the report- I was out at Navarre a last week and have noticed the fleas are much harder to come by than a few weeks ago.
