John Crowe, friend and part-time Ocracoke resident, sent me the following photos yesterday. These are just two of the nine Drum he and his wife Joan caught in Ocracoke inlet on Friday. They also caught four on Saturday. All were between 40 & 45 inches. You can see the excitement in their faces. John says "the action was fast and furious. Nine fish in 90 minutes before we ran out of bait."
Of course, all of the fish were released after being caught.
Lou Ann spends much of the summer on Ocracoke, and makes frequent visits throughout the year. She enjoys making short videos as she goes "out and about" around the island and elsewhere. She posts her videos on her blog. You can watch them here:
