So Iโ€™m brand new to fishing. My grandfather took me out as a very young kid but thatโ€™s it!! Yesterday, we went to Lake Whitney SP and I caught only 1 fish. But it was a decent size and still had a lot of fun so worth it! But I canโ€™t for the life of me, figure out what kind of fish it is! Iโ€™d really appreciate yallโ€™s help! Thanks so much!

By the way, those that size a pretty good table fare.

Thanks! Yes, I immediately bled it out and gutted it! Definitely big enough for a meal! Trying to decide the best way to cook it now! ๐Ÿ˜

welcome Glad your here. My Grandmother pressure cooked those kind of fish which also included Buffalo and Carp. She had a wonderful recipe for like tuna salad sandwiches that she did for use kids. They have more bones than Bass or Crappie. Pressure cooking eliminates that problem.

Brilliant idea! Thatโ€™s my only thing about fishing....I love eating fish but just canโ€™t handle all the bones! Thanks for the tip!

Yep, My granny and carp, she did the same thing. Drum are fun to catch, always thought they were a pretty ugly fish, not near as pretty as their salt water cousin. I tried frying some, meat was white and flavor not bad, texture just seemed a little weird. May try the grill for my next one. Welcome welcome

I suggest you always no what species of fish you have before keeping and cleaning it. It could get expensive if you get checked and have illegal fish.
