Red drum. Yankees have spread the slang "Reds" but I've always called it a drum. Also called a "Channel Bass".

To relate to freshwater and assuming it had the tolerance for the salinity, if a largemouth was caught from the atlantic it would lose it's color similarly to that guy for the most part.. just it's most prominent features remaining. I'm referring to fish absorbing some of their surroundings, some using it as camo and stuff.

This is what a "Red" Drum looks like when you catch it in a more enclosed area like a sound or a bay or something:



Looks like there's a salt marsh near by, so that one has nice colors. They get even stronger than that though.

Man catches 38 pound catfish.  He says he is going to eat it and share with friends.  Most fish that big are not that good to eat.  :yuck:

Yea, that's a flathead catfish (Pylodictis olivaris), and I've been fortunate enough to shock up many of them for mercury and pesticide contamination studies. One STRONG fish. We only keep the edible sizes and let the larger 25-75 lb. ones go. They are top of the scale predators when they get that large and even their fillets are rounded sections of muscle that is not as delicate and tasty as a younger fish.  Still, a beautiful fish. Just don't "lip" a large one and expect to have an easy time of it. They bite down with a toothy grip and shake their strong heavy tails until you let them go....back into the river or ice box.  :D

That's what makes me cringe thinking about all these people who "noodle" catfish. Those fish can absolutely REMOVE your fingers from you. YES, BITE THEM OFF! Those people are nuts.

I actually don't like to catch catfish that big anymore even though sometimes I do. When I do these days, it really ain't by choice. The only poles, lines, and reels I use anymore are really only good for medium sized bass and smaller. Last thing I want is to snap one of my last remaining favorite poles. But every once in a while, one of the channel cats will manage to move in and take whatever bait I'm using, and at that point all I can do is let the drag out a little and wear him down until I can hopefully reel him in and get my hook out of him without him snapping my line and making me have to re-tie snap swivels and hook snells.

I can't tell what species they are.... but I'm a freshwater biologist and know just a little about the saltwater fishes. Either way, you catch, clean, and eat them in short order, you are getting the BEST tasting fish no matter the type.....plus you had the fun of catching them.

Take that PETA    :fight:

checked out one of the boxes that a lady at work had gotten for her husband and the lures and stuff were all pretty good quality and definitely worth the cost.

Strange, seems UDP packets are being blocked somewhere in the datacenter.

Oh, of course as I type this it starts working again. (Was about to submit a trouble ticket. Let's see if it holds up.)
