) — From St. Jerome's Creek, Christy Henderson (www.buzzsmarina.com) told me, "Capt. Rafiq Munir and Dennis McCain hit the lucky red drum beat south of Buoy 72a in 60 feet of water after drifting for hours and picking up nearly three dozen nice croakers on shrimp, bloodworms and squid. All of a sudden two big red drum hit the lines, but they were too big. They exceeded the legal slot limit of 18 to 27 inches and had to be let go."
