I caught a 18 inch drum today it was hard fishing on my ugly stik. Does anybody know how to catch lots of them? I used nightcrawlers

Night crawlers or leaches on a jig or slip bobber work well, I have been catching the on the ned rig recently too.

jigging spoon, jigs, and plastic worms.

they eat primarily on the bottom, and will eat anything you put in front of them on bottom.

I find putting a bait in the water to work best for drum.

Seriously, I've caught them on everything except a topwater. Once they get larger than a couple pounds they become mainly fish eaters but they eat lots of crawdads too. A live crawdad is far and away the best bait for them here. If you're going to fish a lure for them, I'd suggest a crawdad colored crankbait (I like a wiggle wart), bumped slowly around rocky areas. A Ned rig is also a drum catching machine. I've caught them on every type of plastic, crank, trap, jerkbait, spinnerbaits, bladed jigs, swimbaits, everything but a topwater.
