That 14 pound Red you caught in June, would fight twice as hard as that 25-30 pound Black Drum would to give you some perspective...
Right now, they should be able to find some Redfish in the 20+ pound range down there "and they likely will", those are the fun ones, especially in the warmer water temps of the early "Bull Red" season...
Black Drum aren't worthless by any means, but they don't fight anything like you would expect...
I have an email in to the guys asking just that......after staring longingly at the pic, it didn't look quite right. No spot, and the head/shoulders seem too "high".....not torpedo like at all. I think black drum "eat" pretty well in the smaller sizes.
