An additional suggestion is to inspect your lure every 15 mins if you don't get a strike. If you do find the fish, most strikes happen a couple of seconds after the lure hits all-time low. To locate the fish, ask your local tackle store where the fish are attacking; most take on dispensaries will be satisfied to inform you. Also look for the size restrictions of the black drum in your area. I hope these ideas are helpful and make your angling travel much more pleasurable.

Black drum often feed inshore at high tide and also leave when reduced trend occurs. You can find them near jetties, bridge pilings, piers, boat drops anchor, around oyster beds, bays, and marshes. They could be at sandy bottoms also. You could apprehend them from the surf, from an anchored watercraft or trolling. When angling for black drum you could wish to hesitate a few secs before setting the hook as they mouth the lure. A bunch of times when fishing the pier you can view them, and you can jig your lure before them. When you hook one they set up an intense fight. I have had a few large ones crack my line.
