Is a Drum fit to eat?
Have caught quite a few lately at Ft Loudon and Telco.

When I was a kid a man I knew ate them. He lived a normal long life so I guess they are good to eat.

Yes, drum are very good to eat. Filet, cut into strips, para-boil and eat them with shrimp cocktail sauce. Firm white flesh.
