I've caught more drum this year than my previous 35 years fishing combined. Anybody else been experiencing this phenomena? Most have come from Hubbard, Lewisville, & Roberts.

stomp em in da head....

That's what a TN "resort" worker on Lake Reelfoot told me to do when trying to catch crappie when I pointed out the large number of drum. We had a good laugh

Was fishing Hubbard yesterday and caught two. I have caught more than usual this year,now that I think about it. What's up with that?

They love a KVD 1.5 at Fork. Think I've caught about 8-10 this year up to 10 lbs.

Yeah, I had one about 5-6 lbs. yesterday on Hubbard on a KVD 1.5. Destroyed my crank as I was trying to land & release. It completely ripped the front treble off and broke off one of the shanks of the rear. Things are fierce.

Squaw Creek is the drum capital of Texas during the summertime up the river.

You can't throw a moving bait without catching them..

Caught them since the flooding two years ago on Roberts. Last trip I caught a huge one, I would guess at 10-12 lbs.

BTW I decided last trip out I am going to start killing them and tossing them on the bank for the birds. Too many of them and they are competing with the bass for food.

Unless they are considered an "edible fish" or game fish I do not see where it is breaking the law. I am thinking it is like bow fishing for carp or gar. I may be wrong and I will clear it up with a game warden before I proceed. I do not knowingly break game laws.

Drum eat zebra mussels, probably why the population is increasing.
