A lot of people in the north confuse juvenile black drum with sheepshead as they also have those convict bars but the head and dentures are very different.

I will agree, they are good eating! I have caught them while fishing for redfish in the Louisiana bayous. They put up a nice tussle on light tackle.

They are around in modest to decent numbers in NJ most years... Barnegat Light , mid to late summer,, close to the rock piles . They are around most inlets and shallow rock pile or wood piling areas from Barnegat Inlet down to cape may... Shallow water snags and rock piles that don't get pounded are the best bet . Fiddler crabs, quartered green crabs, sand bugs...bob

Down here shrimp (sorry Steve) are the bait of choice, either on a jig head or on a small hook on a 4 foot leader to a swivel stopping a small egg sinker. If this doesn't make sense let me know and I'll try to explain better.

They are caught occasionally in BI along the rock jetties each summer.

Catch them all the time here in Melbourne Florida.Shrimp, sand fleas fiddlers,blue crab, ''BARNACLES". Scrape the pilings and put a barnacle on a small hook.It all works.Kind a like blackfish-some people can crush them and others swing and miss lol
