Paul Coari sent this photo he took of a friend sight-casting to “tatanka” (black drum) in the Gulf.
“Just read your article on hunting tatanka and it had alot of good information.” Coari wrote. “My friend and I enjoy sight casting them on the flats with lite tackle. The gulp shrimp and crab baits work well. The trick to catching them is to cast beyond them and bring the bait close to them and let them find it. Bringing the bait right up to them usually spooks them. They are alot of fun to catch.”
