Nice catch. Reminds me of when I was a kid living in Kansas and Grandpaw would take me fishing for fresh water drum at the old dam.

When I managed the Pass Christian Yacht Club for three years, if I couldn't get Redfish for a planned meal, I just bought Drum...nobody ever knew the difference, even though many members considered themselves "seafood experts". Redfish and Drum are just branches of the same family and taste alike when cooked. I always swore my cooks to silence!

We butchered a few big ones and they have worms or some kind of things in them around the tail area. Not very appetizing. White trout have something like that also.

If I didn't see the worms I bet it wudda been good tasting fish.Offshore we cooked all kinds of fish. Even cooked one of those big eels with a head like a Doberman. It was mighty fine. Cooked shark too. Not too good but some guys who didn't know what it was ate it all up...haha

We used to eat the small sharks, 3-4 feet long, that we caught in the trawls when I was working with my father-in-law. They were mighty good eating.

Yeap, time to get up a redfish/drum trip.

Probably a lot of people eating scallops at the hibachi restaurant are actually getting shark or skate, or is that an old wives tail?

Could depend on where you are. Yes, you can make skate or sting ray wings imitate scallops. However, in many states (like Florida) there are VERY strict rules on how restaurants can label fish. For example, "Vietnamese Grouper" (which isn't really grouper at all) is sold commercially and in places like MS you can go to a restaurant and order grouper off the menu and get served this crap. In Fl, restaurants can loose their food service license for doing that.
