Nice, any pics? I thought Pat was a guide down in Florida. Those guys could cast a mile way back when before all this fancy equipment came out. First Drum I ever saw was in late 70s as the twins and the rest of the VA beach gang were nailing them down Okie way. Now I feel old cause that was probably before you were born. You had some pretty good experienced fishing addicts on that boat thats for sure. Great trip

thanks. Pat is a guide down in the keys but he comes up here in early august to mate for Arch until the drum start biting and then he fishes for drum until he leaves after thanksgiving. I don't have any pics of mine but I should have 1 or 2 pics of the other one.
