Record Black Drum Catch and Release

Scott Likwartz caught this enormous Black Drum out of Galveston Bay on September 9, 2023.  The fish measured 41 inches in length and was caught on a rod and reel with a whole crab acting as bait.  Angler Scott Likwartz earned a Water Body Release Record and a Big Fish Award for this marvelous catch, and the drum was released to swim another day!
