Caught this bottom fishing at Southern in about 230. Looks similar to a black drum- What is it.

Looks like a Croaker. Kind a deep though.

It was easy for Terry to catch them because Moses just parted the sea and Terry picked them up.

Me Too. In the Late 70’s I would go down to Texas City and fish off the rocks on the Dike. Mid September. Would catch Croaker that pushed 2 Lbs, and the occasional Flounder that went 5 Lbs. Took about 2 hours to fill up my 48 Qt. Igloo. Will never forget those days.
