Fished October 26, 2019, started catching bait in the dredge pond just before daybreak, the first cast yielded large menhaden, kept a few for cut bait. Found the finger mullet up against the grass several cast later bait well was full, headed south to muddy slough.

The ride south was just a bit cool, the river was calmly made for a beautiful morning, the first stop I fished my high water spot, saw several drums pushing water in the tall grass reeds.

Set out finger mullet and cut bait, with the first strike on cut bait, had two or three hits before we hooked up on small puppy drum. I moved a little closer to the grass line where we caught several more small drums. Moved around a bit and Vince caught his first keeper red drum.
