Fish: Freshwater Drum

Finally Hooked Up With A HD Lure In Oklahoma

Post By: EOrf      Posted: 6/9/2012 9:49:26 PM     Points: 2482    
Started out with a Double Jig set up for a while nada switched up to a Black n Gold Hd,slow steady retrieve worked almost had a super mad gill on but it got off,got snagged up so i moved around to the south side so i could try n get untangled,succeeded at that so i cast out into the current of the swiftly moving water.
Lots of shad popping and skipping around so i knew something was on the hunt started seeing boils i think not sure,got a good hit and my drag started going out and i just knew it was a Wiper or White got it in and was surprised to see a crazy ole Drum
This Guy must of been hungry cause it swallowed the lure the only thing that stopped it from going down it's gullet was the treble hook by the bill got hooked in it bottom lip or it would of been swallowed! Got a Pic and released this Fish...Just Happy A HD Worked In Oklahoma

FYI If Anyone Cares I was fishing The Candian River Off I40&Eastern St OKC Right Behind The Petro Truck Plaza
