Black Drum are gray or black colored with a high arched back with slightly angled verticle light black stripes. They lack the spot on the tail which the Red Drum has. The common name “Drum fish” comes from their ability to make a drumming sound during courtship or when pulled from the water. They do this by rubbing special muscles against an air bladder thus producing the drum-like sound.
While some prefer flounder, red drum, snapper, or some more glamorous fish, many anglers maintain that black drum less than five pounds, cleaned and prepared properly, may be better than many of these so-called “choice” fish. Black Drum Fish have a mild, sweet flavor with firm flesh and large, moist flakes that cooks up white. It is comparable to Red Snapper.
