Default Black drum

Rode down to Richmond Hill and fished for a day.

No keeper Trout or Redfish but did manage to catch a 14 lb black Drum.

Caught so many sharks that I quit counting.

Hung into something else that almost spooled me. I'm guessing it was a big shark. Had about 6 loops of braided line left when I realized I had to do something quick. I grabbed the spool to stop it and just hung on. After about 20 minutes, I finally got it back near the boat and it took off again and the hook pulled out. That was a real bummer because I never got to see what is was. The pic of the rod bent over is after it started another run for deep water.
