US: caught an huge 30 lb drum while bowfishing
Angler Joshua Cole of Reeds Spring, Missouri has officially claimed the record for taking down the largest freshwater drum in state history by bowfishing.
Joshua’s new state record weighed out to an incredible 30 pounds, 15 oz., measuring just at 33 inches long.
Cole was fishing on Table Rock lake when he stuck a single arrow in the big drum.
The previous freshwater drum record taken by alternative means was arrowed back in 2008 and weighed in at 26-pounds, 8-ounces from the Lake of the Ozarks.
