Went out to the Dike today to check on an upcoming 30th Annual Rusty Hook Fishing Club's Black Drum Tournament in mid March. www.rhfishing.org
I ventured to the end where folks were catching Black Drum...in the 33" range. Being illegal to keep, it was released.
Slot limit is 14"-30". One fella a day or two ago caught two bigger ones....42" and 44". So they are there folks.
Crabs are the bait of choice. Visit Boyds One Stop at the base of the Dike...the Cajun Grill is open..Great chow.
BTW: Tickets for the tourney are at Boyds. This year the tourney will be held on TWO weekends Weigh station will be in the Brown Trailer adjacent the parking lot. I'm fishing it...see ya there.. And Remember..Take a Kid Fishing
