Re: Freshwater drum

We used to catch a bunch of them in Bonny when I was growing up. My biggest probably was 4-5 pounds. I used to have a jar of the stones from the head I collected. My Mom used to cube the fillets and boil them in salt water. Once cooked we dipped them in melted butter and I remember them being pretty good. I was just a boy than and probably any fish prepared that way would taste good. We still catch them out there every year, no size to them any more.

Re: Freshwater drum

Never caught the freshwater type, but the saltwater drum are some feirce fighters, they are related to the red fish, which is also known as a red-drum...

Re: Freshwater drum

The only freshwater Drum I ever caught was in Texas fishing for bluegill on an ultra light with my young son. I fought it for over and hour. I fought it so long my son got bored and headed for the play ground! Anyways I got it near the shore got a good look at it relized I wasn't going to eat and cut my line. That is my only fresh water drum story.

Re: Freshwater drum

Yes freshwater drum are edible and bullhead also. As was mentioned earlier bullheads are great eating when taken from clear water. Muddy water imparts a strong undesireable flavor.
