Thank you, Dianne and Bravo! I am home now, but with fond memories. The Internet photos I posted on the other picture are of black drum, but I can't be sure that was exactly what we have here. In any case, this was found on the Gulf beach, so would eliminate the freshwater fish. Glad you enjoyed looking at this weird beach find!

I see you are enjoying Galveston. There are three fish that have the word "drum" in their name - Black Drum, Red Drum, and fresh water Drum. All of them have the shell crushers in their throats. All are excellent table fare. The red drum, aka redfish, channel bass, is a major sport fish. The black drum is a major commercial fish and is served in restaurants. The fresh water kind, aka gasper gou, is the least know but an excellent fish. All are strong fighters on rod and reel and can grow to 50#s +.

Yup. Drumfish was my next guess after eel. Not! Thanks for the challenge, Kathy!
