Black Drum Battle

Because of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, The Fisherman will be postponing the start of the Black Drum Battle in 2020 until June 1. Given the community restrictions, guidelines and closures, our staff has decided to hold off on the official start of Black Drum Battle in hopes that conditions improve enough that we still have a month of competition.

Our decision to postpone the contest start date June 1 follows our most recent region-wide decision to also suspend The Fisherman’s Dream Boat Fishing Challenge. “We remain hopeful that community efforts to “flatten the curve” are proving effective, and optimistic that this too shall pass in relative short time,” said Mike Caruso, owner of The Fisherman.

And as Mike said of the month-long postponement of our annual Dream Boat Fishing Challenge, the postponement of the May kickoff seems the most encouraging move we can make right now, as we continue to remain positive.
