Red Drum caught near Marina jetties

Here is the picture of the 20" red drum caught by my brother in law
Mark Brown on my boat August 31 on squid. He caught it just outside
of the mouth of the marina to the right where the shell bed is. We
fish that bed quite a bit and it produces. We are still debating on
the boatel and it is always a pleasure speaking with you. Jay
