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.
