      I usually fish parks and piers but 61st is a good starter pier. I'm not saying it's the best but it's caught me alot of fish. @zksutton
    6. zksutton 0
      What's the best pier also
    7. zksutton 0
      I've caught a lot of little black drum and whiting from the beach with shrimp, but do you always go to piers when you fish
    8. zksutton 0
      Ok great thanks so much
    9. Texas_Slam 0
      big chunks of whiting mullet and shad work well. stop by Bayou bait for some fresh bait @zksutton

  6. Little drum were being caught everywhere yesterday on the pier and I got 2 myself. I was walking up to change the bait on my surfrod and I notice the rod tip bouncing ...more up and down. I put my reel on free spool and waited for her to run with it, when she did I locked full and set hook.

      weight in the air. on the pier I cast behind the back rail so I get more leverage. @ThatOneFisher
    3. ThatOneFisher 0
      Thanks, do you set the weight on the ground or cast with the weight in the air?
    4. Texas_Slam 0
      whip it as hard as I can really. my dad taught me a technique for pier and flat land. it's a big difference casting from pier. Just practice casting at a football ...more field or on the pier. @ThatOneFisher
    5. ThatOneFisher 0
      Nice drum man! I have a question, what method do you use to cast. The pendulum or what?
    6. Texas_Slam 0

  9. This one is a first for me. We run out of crab and all we have left were the crab claws. I hook one through the elbow and out the joint just how a buddy of mine ...more showed me one day. I was doubtful about it but sure enough I end up catching this big ugly.

  10. Got into a little drum run. They were hitting on the left hand side of the pier and started to hit on our side. 3 rods went off and one of them happened to be mine. ...more I set hook and fish on. Out of the 3 I was the only one to hook one the 2 other fish shook the hook and the other couldn't stick the fish on time.
