I have caught a few on Conroe. I have seen some large one's caught.
All they are is a black drum, which is a good eating fish.
They seem to be held in less than favorable regard.
Black drum grill up very nicely.
Does anyone go after gasper-goo ?

I've eaten plenty of black drum but a goo ain't the same animal. Probably cooks up ok though.

Goo

Black drum

Maybe I should have filleted this one.

I always called these white drum.

From TPWD: Although freshwater drum is considered a rough fish by many anglers, it is prized as a food fish in some areas. Drum are also sought after as bait for other species. In Texas the rod and reel record exceeds 30 pounds, and the trotline record is 55 pounds.

What I would like to know is: where is "some areas"?

Very good tasting fish.

We always kept them when I was a kid. They do get very
skinny after they spawn, I imagine they would not be
very good at that time.

They love crawfish.

Loc: TX, of course.
Freshwater drum love muscles too.

They filet up like a 5 lb crappie. They taste better than white bass, and have the same firm texture as their saltwater cousins.

They are the only freshwater species of the drum family, but are very similar in many ways to black drum, or redfish.


I have a hard time targeting them other than a couple months of the year when they come in very shallow. They are a blast on a fly rod once they pass 8 lbs or so too.

My largest is just over 20 lbs, and I catch a couple around 15 or so every year.

I do eat them, but I stick to the ones under 8 lbs or so.

Next time you catch a 1 or 2 pounder, fillet it up with the white bass or crappie you were targeting, and you'll be surprised. Of course, last time I told someone this, they put crappie on ice, and threw the freshwater drum on the deck all day, then complained about the taste .... hammer
