Outer Banks Fishing Report June 22, 2011

The hot bait for black drum is peeler crabs which is the bait for the big ones. Fishing with peeler crab is messy. You remove the top shell, cut the crab into quarters. Remove the claws and legs and run the hook thru the knuckle and out the bottom shell. The bait will stay on the hook. That is where my problem happens to be. Black Drum are bottom feeders. The bait of choice are clams, fresh peeler or soft crab. Black Drum will show up in the spring when the water temp reaches 58 degrees.
