Our friend Alan seems to have a thing for Black Drum. We posted an absolute beast he landed in Perdido about a month ago. And while he didn't measure this one, it was definately bigger...



Caught on the north beach at Pickens on Sunday, late afternoon on light tackle (Penn 4300, solid glass vintage rod and 15# mono)and leftover frozen shrimp.

Alan said he bit hard and then was unmovable for the first 10 minutes.Alan justfollowed the fish around. He pulled like a tractor, slow and steady, and ripped drag at will. I'm not real good at time when a fish is on, but I'm guessing 25-30 minutes. We revived him and let him swim after a couple of pics. Nothing else to report but catfish.

Nice job Alan! This was a break-off waiting to happen.
