Red Drum

Latin Name:  Sciaenops ocellatus
 

General Size:  25" x 7"

The Red Drum can be found in the well-represented drum family, the Sciaenidae. This species is a definite must for inshore fishermen looking for a fight. The Red Drum is often found by shallow water fishermen in flats boats. Fishermen will find Red drum in such extreme shallows so extreme that their backs and tails will often break the surface. In the sandy and muddy shallows Red Drum are looking for crustaceans and mollusks which they crush with powerful jaws in their throat called the pharyngeal jaws. During mating season this species earns its name by producing a “drumming” sound when specific muscles work in concert with its swim bladder. The Red Drum can reach and exceed 40 inches in length and weigh over 40 pounds.
