        Ducknbuck, where were you fishing at? I usually fish in the northern neck or Mobjack.

              Yes there are ALOT of fish in rudee inlet right now but the report is out everywhere and the anglers are coming out in droves.

                  So, in Looziana we call them redfish or reds. Curious as to where the term 'puppy drum' comes from. I get the drum part - redfish = red drum. What about the puppy part?

                    Juvenile fish. Less than 30" below 10lbs. Stay in near shore environments (coastal rivers, shallow bays, etc..) until they reach adulthood and then some venture off shore until they return to spawn.

                        We are told that we shouldn't judge all Muslims by the actions of an extreme few. Why can't we offer millions of law-abiding American gun owners the same consideration?

                          You got that right. I was in VB the weekend before last. I didn't get to fish but I couldn't believe how many boats and yaks I saw in the back of Rudee. The parking lot at the ramp was so full it looked like it was striper season.

                            POQ River/CHisman Creek is my backyard... literally. Got a 22ft Cobia Catching machine just itching to go. caught over 50 of them brown suits last year before the motor popped. Always welcome to come down for a flats mission too though.
