Drum, Freshwater

This sheepie hit an octopus tube jig on my ultralight intended for the white bass that were mysteriously not where they were supposed to be, and I didn't have a net ready for him! He took me for a ride all the way down the shoreline before I could grab him...   

So many people say these fish are ugly. I'll never understand why - if only people would take a minute to really look closely at their colors I think a lot of minds would change.
