    best eating is crappie, and you can catch whole mess of them on a clouser minnow. blue gill taste equally as good. best to catch is a brown trout. one fish I absolutely do not want to catch is a drum. yuck.

    Here in Louisiana, we're spoiled...a lot of choices. Most people fish saltwater around here, and most would vote for speckled trout...they're great to eat, but if I had to pick a "best fish", it would definitely be flounder. Nothing beats a nice flounder fillet stuffed with crabmeat. Black Drum and redfish are good too, as long as they aren't too big.

    As for freshwater, sac-a-lait (crappie), bream and catfish are good. Most of my freshwater fishing is catch-and-release, though (bass and trout). With all the high-population saltwater species around, that can take the heavy fishing pressure, why bother?

    black drum? I wonder if this is the same as the drum I've caught in melton hill lake. I don't think you'd want to eat a radioactive drum from east tennessee. but I could be wrong.

    Nope...Black Drum are a saltwater species...found in coastal bays, bayous, etc. Good to eat when they're young - when they get big (and they can get up to 70lbs or so), they develop plating around their gills that you can't cut with a chain saw. They are the bane of oystermen - one large drum can wipe out a whole reef.

    I've never heard of anyone eating freshwater drum (known as gaspergou here in LA)...I suppose they would be ok, but a radioactive one? I wouldn't want to end up like that Russian chap
