Son and I decided to give it one more shot. Had to fight through the big rays but drum finally came on with the hard running incoming, 20 feet of water. Lost 2 and caught 3 good eating size, one will go on the smoker. Great day.

Those right there the 15-30LB class are hand down the best eating size fish for drum. The bigger ones are grissly and have a tough pork chop consistency and usually have the worms (I always let them go to do their thing and make more drumfish) Thanks for the report. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself if you can spare a LB of drum.
Soak about 5-10 shishkabob sticks in water for 2-3 hours. Then take about a LB of drumfish and cube it into 1" cubes. Get some bacon and cut the pack in half. Wrap the drumfish cubes in bacon and put on a shishkabob stick, season with old bay or JO, pepper, and parsley. Cook on the grill at medium heat (keep an eye on them as the bacon flames up pretty easily and turn them often) when the bacon is sorta crispy, thats when they are done and enjoy- its a really good treat.

Tried a Die Hard recipe with drum tonight. Scales were a little chewy, just kidding, it was outstanding. Wife really liked it as did I. Thanks for sharing, much appreciated. Cole slaw on the side. Before. During. After

Glad you and the wife enjoyed it. It's always a hit here at my house when I'm cooking out. I make them with drum or striper.
