Surf Fishing Report:
A few Sea Mullet, Black Drum and small Trout caught yesterday. It’s chilly this morning. The wind has switched to NE and blowing 18-25. Water temp is 66 degrees. This weather is going to hang through Monday with bigger winds this weekend. This is Drum Weather. Puppy Drum are bottom feeders. You can use a bottom rig with fresh mullet, menhaden or spot for bait. I use a triple swivel rig most of the time. Find a good slough. Sometimes those buggers are right in the wash at your feet. Let me know what’s happening and send pictures.
