20.0" / 4.1 lb. Freshwater Drum caught by Chris DeMartine fishing on Tuesday September 10, 1985 at 17:00 near Avon Lake in Lorain County, Ohio (OH), United States North America using a Bottom Rig With Several Nightcrawlers a Worm

There as a spot here where you could set up a chair and bottom fish for Freshwater Drum. Everyone in Ohio called them Sheepshead, but that's not the right name for this fish. They look more like the saltwater Black Drum species. They are fun to catch & put up a good fight. Lake Erie is full of them. They average about 1.5 - 2.0 pounds, but sometimes you get a nice one that's 4.0 pounds or more.
