Caught this big black drum the night of the LSU-bama championship game from the dock at my buddy's camp on 20lb mono and an uglystick. Havent had time to post it till now. At least something good happened that night.
Put two dead shrimp on the bottom for a little fun junk fishing and my rod slammed on the dock while I was getting another beer. Took about five minutes, but hauled him on the dock to watch a sucker fish fall out of his gills! I'm about 5'11' 185lbs so Im guessing he was mid 30slb, low 40s (not counting the sucker fish)? Im not good at guessing weights, anybody got a clue? It was a pretty small canal 5-10 camps down from where 'The Dude' docks. This one edges out 8-10lb reds as the biggest fish I ever caught.
Threw him back right after this picture was taken.
