11/20/19 Late November Florida Keys Fishing Charter Report

Well another awesome 3/4 day with my friend Peter and his buddy Will. We went out into the park this morning. Chilly again with a decent north breeze though not crazy rough. We fished around several areas and had some luck in just about all of them. Caught a good handful of reds and a couple snook in the first stop, got one decent 10 pound red here. Next stop we got into a mess of smaller ones but still respectable a lot of 3 to 6 lbers. A few small snook too and a couple black drum. Next stop we got a decent snook of 7 lbs or so. Then on the way home we stopped where we had found a handful of big redfish yesterday. I was interested to see if they would still be there or if it was just a fluke. Sure enough first cast we scored a big nice one! Caught 4 more I think all in the 12 to 16 pound range very nice for Florida bay redfish. Then last cast Peter hooked into something huge! After about 5 minutes of tug o war we got a glimpse, it was a huge black drum a.k.a big nasty! We fought it for another 5 minutes or so, very hard to turn him over. But we got him, wow what a fish id say in the 30 to 35 pound range! Just an awesome way to finish our day. Back at it tomorrow folks.
