Myself and Clayton (The wildman of the navidad) fished lake Texana the other day and the fishing was extremely slow! We fished form 10am till 3pm and only caught five fish. The biggest was a Fresh Water Drum. A nice Redear was also caught. The highlight of the trip was a small Alligator that Clayton caught on live worms using a float. The hook was on it's upper mouth and was easily taken out with a pair of needle nose pliers. The gator was released unharmed. We saw several gators that were bigger. Spending a day catching fish and gators. It just don't get any better! fish

I heard Drum was pretty good eating. I have never tried them! May have to give it a try. As for the one I caught It was a hook sallower and was weighted for a water body record for Fresh Water Drum, Texana. The weight of the fish was 3.48 Lbs. The fish will be used for cut bait. thumb

Nice! That lake is full of gators! I caught one a few years ago that size and placed him gently in an empty ice chest till a friend returned to fish. I asked him to fetch me a brew from the box. The hiss of that enormous dinosaur upon opening the box left my friend scrambling for high ground! Then the tiny lizard slid gently back into the Navidad river basin! I still wear the grin! Thanks for the pics!

Poor man's lobster right there. Just get the bones out and you can't tell me it doesn't taste good.

Drum is fine eating,fresh hot etc
Not real bad cold but . . . . not as good
Always crack their skulls and fetch up the pearls
They call'em drum for a reason
