    Don't black drum have a more pronounce hump at the top of the head?

    Looks to be a black drum.. A redfish of that size would be longer and not as deep-bodied. (Just judging by what I've seen)

    Either way, nice catch - what did he eat?

    Either way lets say a drum and that's that. I caught him on a piece of blue crab.

    Black drum have firm, white meat fillets. The big guys can be a little tough that's why I mentioned chowder. I haven't made it in a couple years but from what I remember it was like a clam chowder but more meaty, if that makes sense. Cube the fish up and put it in the chowder, the fish stays firm in cubes and won't fall apart. I liked to use a little Everglades seasoning and some cayenne pepper to give the fish a little flavor.
