how long do the drum stay around the beaches of va(i.e. sandbridge)? When do they stop catching drum around there? im new to surf casting for drum, and any info would help. my setup is a 12 ft beefstick(4-8oz) with a sl30sh reel. 17lb line, 50lb shock leader. any suggestions on setup? any suggestions on bait? any help would be greatly appreciated!

thats a good setup for just starting. i would get fresh bunker and spot heads for bait. and last year they stayed around til like mid-november and then headed south if i remember correctly. but i think im thinking about something else for some reason. lol

Welcome aboard. Rumor has it that the drum bit is almost over but there are still a few being caught but mostly by boaters. The surf has slowed down quite a bit not saying you cannot catch one there.

What chew talkin' bout Willis?!?! :p

Welcome aboard!

Your set up is fine, use a Fish Finder rig with your set up and a nice 9-10/0 in-line circle hook.
