    Inshore Reports
    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.
