Dlack Drum fishing in Cape May NJ. We use a simple fish finder rig with a 6/0 8/0 hook baited with a hole fresh clam, I'll toss a couple of crushed clams over every once in a while to get some cent in the water. They are bottom feeders, so I tell everyone try to keep it there, it can be tough when the current is running, we anchor up in about 15 to 25 ft of water. It's a simple system. 16 in. min. size, we don't keep anything that small, they can run up to 100 lbs plus, but we avg. about 40 to 60 lbs. this one is considered a puppy drum about 20 lbs. Typical size.
