Adult Spotted Drum Fish


A nice example of an adult Spotted Drum fish. They are relatively easy to photograph because they tend to go back and forth in their hole, usually doing circles or figure eights, so all you need to do is wait for them to come back, timing the shot when they will appear.


While this is fish is interesting as an adult, it is quite spectacular as a juvenile, with a very long swooping dorsal fin and an equally long tail fin.
