Lots of Red Drum in Mid-February!
Location: Patuxent River
The morning after Valentines Day, Mike Henderson, Tommy Donaldson, and I hit my go to winter Patuxent hot spot. Though we were seeking white perch, we caught over two dozen red drum. None were big enough to keep but I was glad to see these fish have wintered here. Also, we caught ten channel cats and five blue cats. These Pax River blue cats taste as good as their bigger brethren in the Potomac. Delicious!
Though we didn't catch any white perch, we had another great day of fishing education. This year, my goal is to post a Patuxent Patriot Red, White, and Blue Trifecta (legal sized red drum, white perch, and blue catfish). Who'll be first to post the Joshua Barney Trifecta pic?
