Hey all, it has been awhile since I have been on here. I have a quick question for anyone who could answer. My classmates and I have noticed that freshwater drum seem to be showing up in a few walleye diet samples. Has anyone ever heard of or used drum as a prey source?

In my "Fishes of Missouri" book it says that drum move from rivers and into tributary streams during the spawning season and that the eggs float for a few days before hatching.

If they require flowing waters I don't think that they would have a successful spawn in a small lake or pond. They also grow pretty fast so they wouldn't be susceptible to predation after a few years which good possibly lead to issues associated with fish that are bottom feeders.
