    It actually is.
    The northern name for them is a Drum, sheepshead is more the southern species. Up here they are just Freshwater Drum

    What is this fish

    Ok to start off I fish for bull red drum and this is not a red drum for sure. For the guy who say they are fish from the gulf only is wrong. Drum range all the way up the east coast and they use rivers and inlets to seek shelter and to feed during the summer months before they start there migration down south in the winter so it is possible to get a drum into a lake but red drum are red as they have in there name and they have a white belly. I can tell you with out a doubt that this is a fresh water drum that's why it has the charecteristics of a red drum because they are in the same family just one lives in salt water and the other in fresh. Hope that answers your question
