We're catching a lot of Black Drum... Some of the guys on the bridge said that they are trash fish and not good to eat... While others love to cook and eat them... Let me know what you think... I gave mind away today....

The smaller ones are good to eat. Larger ones can sometimes be wormy.

Good fishing!

up to 15-20 lbs they are very good. as they get bigger than that they do get kind of wormy but they can still be eaten.
