A freshly minted copper penny, that’s what a red drum from the marshes of Louisiana reminds me of. The metallic colors and unique spots on these fish are truly amazing.
Sometimes it’s better to be lucky, than good. We’ve all heard this old adage before and when it comes to fishing there are certainly times it holds true. I was reminded of this fact a few weeks ago when a good friend of mine came to visit for a day on the water and then a day of skiing. Which all sounds great, until you consider the fact that these two activities require the exact opposite weather conditions for pure joy.
