How Heavey is this Drum?

My brother and I went trolling yesterday for some walleyes. Couldnt find the walleyes but we didnt manage to drag in this huge drum. We didnt have a scale or meausuring tape and didnt think until we released the fish that the state record in New York is 24.8lbs. Now I feel kinda a sick becasue Im prerry sure this fish was close.



I didnt come this far to miss.

Re: How Heavey is this Drum?

That's a monster sheepie but no where near record status. Sheephead don't weigh near as much as you think they should because they are very thin laterally. Def a trophy sheepie though.
