Randy Plyler, a fishing guide out of Arkadelphia and a regular contributor to the AGFC's Weekly Fishing Report, recently hauled in this 15.8-pound drum while fishing on Lake Ouachita, "the biggest drum I've ever caught. Had me excited for a minute," he said. The qualification for drum in the AGFC's Master Angler Program starts at 12 pounds, which puts Plyler in that category. The state record for drum is 45 pounds, 7 ounces caught in Lake Wilson in 2004.
