I believe the Drum DOA is holding was the one we weighed in for the ADSFR 44lbs I think is what it weighed.

Check these guys out. We caught them for the ADSFR two years ago!!!!! Nothing like catching a 40lb bream on 15 lb line. Cool Cool

We will have to get after some in a few months. Exclamation Exclamation

This is one I caught a month before the ADSFR in 07 and we estimate its weight at 60lbs and released it may have been a new state record but I hated to kill it and it be for nothing.

We were fishing for croakers for bait when I caught this joker 15# berkley big game 1/4 oz sinker and a #8 plain jane eagle claw hook

I'm not sure, that fish goes off the chart Shocked Laughing

It's probably older than the angler that caught it Wink Twisted Evil

Imho, those drum 3#-6# are THE best eating around (better than sheepshead even ;-)

black drum on the table

Post  gulfcoastgamefish on Tue Mar 31, 2009 12:35 pm

agreed on that #'r. My wife and I have been eating well the past couple of nights. Got to add a pomp to the menu, though.

I am the one that took the pic of the monster. It was 4 ft. at least. It was the biggest I have seen so far.
What was funny is that he thought he had hooked a huge ray and set the rod in a holder for a little while to help DP land a red. After about 5 or 10 he picked the rod back up to real in the ray and it ended up being the drum. Razz Razz Razz Razz Razz Razz Cool Cool
