Epic day of the ‘Big Nasties’

Well had one of the best days ever last week fishing with my dad and our friend Charlie Kluck.  Lots of big black drum, big snook, permit, cobia, and more!  One to remember thats for sure…  The best fish of the day was a 45ish lb black drum for Charlie, maybe the biggest I’ve ever seen back there.  Then he followed it up with a 25ish lb snook!  It was definitely his day.  Also as mentioned we caught several more big black drum, some snook, and a permit and a couple small cobias.  Also included in the video are some good catches from my anglers later in the week with some large redfish.  January is a great time and offers some unique opportunities with the colder weather patterns.  Not always like this but it can be when conditions are right, and you definitely can’t catch ’em sitting on the couch!  Also please subscribe to our YouTube channel below if you want to see more.
