To me they are a fresh water drum. Some others that is what they call a grinnell or bowfin. I've found articles on Google for each.

Who is right?

Same thing as a drum.

A bowfin/grinnel is a totally different fish.

That's what I had always said, then got questioned on it....I even found articles and stuff on the web that contradicted that. I was worried that I had been making a fool of my self this whole time. Thanks for the verification.

Exactly.

A grinnel has a nasty mouth full of sharp teeth and is longer and skinnier than a drum.

A drum is a thicker, typicly larger fish without the teeth with a mouth more like a carp

I remember catching my first grinnell when I was a kid. I thought I had caught a monster. I remember thinking I was going to lose my rod and reel. They're fun to catch. Never ate one though. I've heard that they're okay if they're eaten hot out of the grease, but otherwise they're nasty.

I have never tried to eat a grinnel either. Most consider them a trash fish. They are very boney and slimy. Whe used to catch them and throw them on the bank to keep them from feeding on other fish.

I'll pass up a catfish to eat a drum. I love the texture. Nothing beats it grilled.

I'll take red perch, goggle eye, blue gill, bass or crappie fried crisp in corn meal salt and pepper over any catfish or drum!

Crappie and blue gill for sure, but I'll have to disagree with you on the bass. It has it's place in my diet but no where near the same ballpark as crappie or bream, IMO.

I call it a gou....some people call it supper....

Mark 16: 16..."16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned."

Acts 2: 38...."38And Peter said to them, "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."

Acts 22: 16...."16And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name."

I Peter 3: 21...."21Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,"

The above Scripture is from the English Standard Version

Never caught one on a line, but stuck many a grinnel with an arrow. A few pushing 10 lbs. Strong, tough fish....or whatever the hell they are. I know you don't put your fingers anywhere near their mouth.

OMG!!! Say it ain't so. I have eaten most fish, most ways, and I do believe I would starve before I ever ate another drum. I knew it, I knew it, somethings gotta be wrong with you!!


Back in the day when Fork first opened. We used to catch grinnel by the basket full. We used to call them Texas Brown Trout. When I was guiding in college I convinced many a client that they were a whole separate species of fish. One that very few people got to see, much less catch. Always good for a laugh way back when.
