Big Black Drum While Kayak Fishing

Type: Chesapeake
Region: Upper Bay
Location: Bay Bridge

Went out to the bay bridge launching from Sandy Point in my kayak on August 11, 2014. I was targeting Striped Bass using live White Perch and Spot for bait and also jigging BKDs. Wasn't having any luck on stripers, but 2 hours into my morning I set the hook into a catch of a lifetime. After a 30 minute battle on light tackle, this 48"+ Black Drum surfaced.
