    I have a couple of Black Drum Fillets that my brother gave me that I am gonna fix up tonight. Anyone have any really good recipes for Black Drum?

    So far, I am contemplating just rubbing them with olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and a little Old Bay and grilling them up.

    Any other ideas?

    are they fresh or have they been frozen for a while? I would only grill them if they're fresh, otherwise I'd lightly fry them in veg oil and a light dusting of flour. Where'd he get them mace?

    I usually don't but only because there's so many other ones to eat but they're not bad. Alot of guys blacken them.

    Really? I can't say that I've ever eaten them, but a lot of folks here do.

    they can live in some f'd up enviornments so some guys are concerned about that, I've never had any issues with that and they're fun to catch.

    There fun to catch, definitely... They have worms where I'm from... I give them away on the pier to the dude with a stringer full of hard head catfish and croakers when I catch one.

    I've heard about the worms, same with grouper but I've never seen any in either one of those I've fileted.

    might be amazing fish, dunno... :meh:... it's just one that we always have given away. I might keep one the next time I catch it...

    Sheepshead is another good one if you get a bigger one, tough to filet but really good eating.

    lol, not really that worried about it :D

    My Brother liven Just outside of Corpus Christie Texas. These have been in the freezer since Oct.

    Blackened sounds tasty tho.


    And, Sheepshead (Salt Water Variety not the Great Lakes Variety) are a GREAT tasting fish.

    Brother also sent me some Sea Trout. I hear those has worms as well. When they are bigger.
    I'll post up on how to cook them in a week or so :D

    sheep head are not boney.. we would snorkel the peir and shoot them most every day when it was warm enough... The fishermen would throw 4oz weights at us. They would be so pissed at our catch of big sheep head..


    Drum is best fried if frozen... fresh you can grill or blacken them.. In NC they were saught after. them and red drum
