I don’t think Freshwater Drum get half the credit they deserve. They were a very welcomed catch while fishing below a dam

I think they fight pretty well, they are a lot of fun on light tackle when they’re this size. They actually grow to a large size (IGFA record for them is over 50 lbs) and the bigger they get the harder they fight. I think most people complain about them because they are typically by-catch when trying to catch catfish, and most people think of them as poor eating (which isn’t actually true, if you clean them right they can be delicious). It just isn’t a commonly targeted species here in the states
