Re: Big drum on Okrakoke
I think that is the shortest span of I've ever seen between big drum caught on Ocracoke in the winter. I believe the Tradewinds site has pictures of 2 large drum caught there on January 19? That's less than 2 months!
On cold winters, those big fish are gone by mid-December and don't reappear until mid-April.
Thanks for the report giacommin, shoot me an e-mail in April if your interested in fishing Assateague in May.
Also, they opened most of that Island back up to driving back in 2005, not sure if it's still like that but if it is it surely gives you a better shot at them!
