    Cool 46 degrees and breezy from the east at 7am on the beach. Low tide and water way out but starting back in... seemed like great conditions for some groceries.

    Wen't out today to catch some mangroves and flounder, caught some mangroves but only 2 keepers. Also caught a keeper flounder along with the mangroves.

    Can someone tell me good places to catch black drum without using a boat? I've heard you can catch them off the bridge by bayview park but I've never seen anyone catch them. Any advice helps.

    I went to a spot DukeDevil91 told me about a few months ago and had a pretty good 45 minute run until I ran out of bait. I landed these 3 plus another legal red about 21 inches. I had a larger fish break off and one other good one got away. The black drum were 17 and 20 inches, the red 23.
