My son hooked into his first bull drum this week near Southport using a Tommy Farmer CPS 12' 3-7 casting rod with a Akios 656 running 20lb Sakuma. Fresh cut mullet on a 8/0 circle hook. Actually caught 5 bulls in the 42-46" range. Here he is all smiles with the 46"....and his Dad's smile was bigger
Congrats on the awesome fish! So when you say "near Southport", where exactly are you talking about? Were you fishing in the Cape Fear River? Just curious since I'll be in Southport this weekend and would love to hook into something like that!! Thanks!
