Black Drum

Black Drum Specifications

Water: Salt/Coastal Waters Where: Surf / Inshore / Rivers And Streams
Size: Most common at 2-30 pounds. Large range from 50-100 pounds.
Fight: Very Strong and stubborn, not as much as a redfish when compared pound for pound, but still considered an excellent gamefish.
Deliciousness: Excellent When Small
Range: Both Coasts Technique: Still Fishing / Casting
Baits: Shrimp / Baitfish / Crab / Squid / Lures / Flies Tackle: Spinning / Baitcasting / Fly Fishing

The Black Drum is characterized by his darker grey (striped when younger) top half with a white underside and "feeler" barbels present at the lower jaw. They have a higher profile than most in the croaker family, with a more prominately sloped forehead and a rounded beak.

These fish are found along the surf and the mouths of rivers, but do roam the hard bottom shallows when smaller. The larger fish prefer the deeper water of cuts, channels and the rough waters of the surf.

Live shrimp crab or dead shrimp and cut crab make for the best natural bait, while not readily fished with artificials, jigs in deep water and streamers or jigs in the shallows will give the best results.
