Giant of the Estuary

Record #:
The black drum, the largest member of the croaker family, is a feisty game fish that provides plenty of fight for fishermen along the Carolina coast. Many states regulate size and creel limits to protect the fish, but black drum fishing in North Carolina is unregulated. The largest black drum ever caught in state waters weighed 100 pounds and 1-ounce and was caught in the Cape Fear River in 1998.
