It has been my experience that only the males croak.Back in the 1970's when the weaks were large and plentiful we would net the fish and wait to see if they croaked. Why I don't know, maybe just curiosity.
That is a good question, but to the best of my knowledge only the males croak. I have caught a few big males in the 5 and 6lb range whiched croaked after I placed them on the stringer and thought they were females, but when I cleaned them found out they were males. The big females I caught never made a sound. Weakfish are members of the croaker family...just alittle F.Y.I.
