Thanksgiving Fishing – Flounder & Black Drum

Fall fishing is in full swing. Most (but not all) of the bait has moved south, and only a few stragglers are left from the hoards of mangrove snapper and mackerel that were so thick a few weeks ago. A few (very few) redfish, snook and grouper have been caught. But black drum and flounder have been on fire since the water turned cooler. The drum hang around the slips and under the dock at Merry pier, and will readily take a live shrimp (if the numerous puffers, filefish, and pinfish don’t get there first). Flounder to 20″ have been caught on mud minnows, root beer & white jigs, and live shrimp.
