Small Fish

Anthony: Liam caught a small fish at the tank on Sunday that looked like a spot(had no spot), did not croak like a croaker, and was not built like a trout..did not have any marking but had the same coloring of all three fish...the mouth was kind of similar to a spot or croaker mouth..it was about 9"..didn't know what it was, used for bait(cut)...the meat was very similar in color and texture to a spot..never seen it before..tight lines to all! Murphman:)

Hey Murphman,
That may have been a juvenile black drum. Here is a pic of a mature black drum.

Juvenile black drum look similar to spot but have black stripes like a sheepshead, just not as many. Hope this helps.

Don't worry about it DOVERPOWER, I know how that is. Fishing has been my only release from stress other than my girlfriend ;) . I will try to bait one next chance I get.

I thought your response was funny Doverpower. I doubt anyone on this board would be that easily offended. Anyways I know your pain. I have one car that I can never park in NYC again and haven't been fishing since summer.
