Spring Fishing

Along with Red Drum, Black Drum of all sizes can be found in the coastal marshes in the spring. Like their cousins, the Red Drum, the numbers of large Black Drum, also called Bulls, increases in the marsh during their spawn and post-spawn period. 

Unlike the Redfish spawn that happens in the fall, the Black Drum spawn in the spring, approximately mid-February through the end of April. During this time, scores of these brutes can be sight-cast to in shallow water with flies and light tackle.

As an added bonus, Bull Redfish will also be mixed in with the Bull Black Drum in the spring. Fishing at this time can produce days filled with battling these beasts, testing the limits of fishermen and tackle.
