This was my first time there, fishing off a couple of friends piers in the Wakulla River. It is brackish water (water occurring in a natural environment having more salinity than freshwater, but not as much as seawater), near where the St. Marks river joins in and 3/4 a mile from the Gulf of Mexico. The fishing certainly weighs heavy on the tide coming in and out. Mike caught a Largemouth Bass on Friday, before I arrived.
The Red Drum (Sciaenops ocellatus) is also known as redfish, channel bass, puppy drum, spottail bass, or simply red. They are found in the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico and are related to the Black Drum and do interbreed.
