Chasing Black Drum

Sometimes Plan B winds up being a hoot.

North American Fisherman has visited Titusville, Florida on several occasions to chase redfish.

This one was different as the space shuttle was flying, and NASA had put the prime redfish waters out of bounds for Capt. Larry Fowler, who advised we either go after black drum or go home. We chose the former, and it proved to be a worthwhile day chasing a less-than-sought-after species of fish.

After all, even a bad day of fishing beats a good day of work, and for our crew it's actually both at the same time, and it wound up being a hoot after all.
