How many of you have cooked and eaten drum? What would you compare it to? Dose it have a lot of bones in the meat or not?

Fresh water drum taste just like redfish if you have ever done any salt water fishing. Just cut out the rib bones and you will have a nice portion of meat with no bones. Next time you fry some fish try it. Could probably cook it on the halfshell as well with a butter garlic sauce.

why so narrow? I'd rather try a drum than eat another trout. Smallmouth tastes pretty good too.

Because we always catch a few when were crappie fishing and cat fishing. I have heard that some people think they are good when fried. I just hate to know I am throwing away a good fish to eat. I think I will save a few next time we go crappie fishing.

I've heard many people say they taste like redfish. I guess it's worth a shot. Worst thing that can happen is you have to spit it out.

Of course now that I decide to try it I'll stop catching them.

Guy I used to work for is a HUGE crappie man. He keeps drum as long as they ain't real big. Says they are great.

I'll let you know hopefully tomorrow if I get the time to fix them. Caught a couple of drum yesterday just to see for myself what they taste like (was only gonna keep one till I gut hooked another one, and I want my hook back lol). So I'm gonna fix them with the catfish and yellow bass I caught as well.

I was messing with you football. Most guys get bent out of shape if someone eats bass. As for the drum, you can have it!

Redfish, whiting, and many other saltwater fish are in the drum family. Growing up we ate lots of them and I always liked them.

I have friends that bowfish and every drum they shoot gets a cooler ride back to the house. They love'em. Compared to trout?? No comparison, I'll take drum anyday over "striper bait".

Ok I finally caught some small drum fish. One about 3 lbs, one a little over 1 lb and one a little under.

I filet them all and just covered them with blackening seasoning and cooked them in a cast iron skillet! It is awesome!

The bigger one is a very firm meat, more firm then any other fresh water fish i have tried. The small ones I would say are really close to taste and texture to largemouth bass.

I will for sure be saving all the drum I catch from now on.

Cool deal. I like the firmer fish myself, going to try one soon whenever I catch a good eating size one.

No bones in the fillet at all! It is really good clean white meat with no bones when you fillet them at all.

Try them on the half shell. Sprinkle some cajun seasoning and garlic powder on them and a little butter. Then grill it scales down until done and sqeeze lemon on top.

No Joking, no trick. I can't say about anything over about 3 lbs yet but the small ones are great. I'm not sure why people don't like them or why they got a bad rap. Same way with Buffalo, there is not much to eat on them but the ribs but they are worth all the trouble.
