A couple of drum were boated Friday on the bay on the Heavy Hitter, Capt. George said. But that was a much slower catch than previously aboard, when trips cleaned up on good catches of drum. A trip aboard Sunday returned to port early, because drum fishing was dead. Maybe the fish were spawning, and the angling should pick back up. Drum could definitely be found, were marked. A few trips on other boats landed drum Sunday that were known about. Three were decked on a boat from the docks, biting immediately, when the trip began fishing. Two or three were taken that day on a larger, party-boat-sized charter vessel, after none was bagged on the boat on the previous several trips. On Friday’s trip, with Doug Ahn, on the Heavy Hitter, one of the drum weighed 50 pounds, and the other was small. Summer flounder season was opened starting Friday, and the Heavy Hitter begins flounder fishing later this year, when waters warm. The boat usually fishes for flounder on the ocean, at places like Reef 11 and the Old Grounds.
