One day a friend and I took the boat out on the river and headed to a favorite swimming spot at about 11:00 AM on a sunday and we had our poles with us and about 2 dozen worms. The drum were jumping like crazy that hot day. So on the way back we tied a small circle hook to our lines with worms on them and drifted back to where we dropped in (not expecting to catch alot. But just maybe....). Oh man! If you want to talk about fun. My friend and I caught 13 drum on that short float back to the landing area. If you realy want to have some fun on a hot after noon on a medium sized river I would recomend that. It was so much fun. I will never forget it.
