Dang!  That thing is built like a cement block! Is that a freshwater drum?

I think somebody did say they're called freshwater drum. We always called them sheep head that's the only thing I know them as.
The fight is unlike anything up here. But they're good for nothing. Just a big rough fish

I would suggest bait.  Use it for cats and when they come in nail them.

My grampa used to cut the stones out when we were kids...but he never fed the fish to us.  I have tried it before. To me it taste like river mud.
