Fatty drum at the outflow

May 21, 2014

I had the chance to take the Tarpon out after work to the outflow. What I immediately noticed was that the water was covered in dead flies. There were no flies buzzing around, but the entire surface of the water was covered!

Things at the outflow were pretty slow. I only managed to hook and land one drum, but this one drum was a complete fatty of a fish. My scale was broken so I could not get a weight, but look at that belly!

I would really like to see what they are eating, but I can’t figure out a palatable purpose for one of these drum.
