Ive been reading the post about eating carp and thought that drum probably taste like carp or better so I tried it today. I pressure cooked it for 20 min but the bones were still hard. I removed all the bones and was going to make patties out of the drum. The smell was so bad my wife said it was making her sick. I got nausiated from the smell. I ended up tossing the whole batch. Man how does anyone eat that. Im hoping carp dosnt have as bad a smell as drum. Id like to try it next but the wife is going to be a tough one to convince.
