The fishing is so good in Florida that you can simply take your freshwater fishing outfit, head down to a local beach, bait-up with some frozen shrimp or squid and just cast off the beach. You don’t have to cast far since many of the fish feed right along the first break within 10′ from where the surf hits the beach.
This angler caught a perfect eating size black drum. This fish looks a lot like our freshwater drum (sheepshead), with the addition of black stripes down the sides. Anglers usually take a lawn-chair, a sun umbrella and some refreshments. What a great way to relax and catch your lunch or dinner!
