    Wow that is interesting. I checked all over the place, and it's true! No limit.

    No size limit

    but they have to be several pounds to have a decent size fillet. A lot of waste on these fish in guts, head and bone, so only keep him if he is 4-5 pounds or bigger to get a good size fillet. I throw em back but hey thats me. Should have seen the look I got yesterday at the point when I let that 25" puppy back in the water. Don't get me wrong, I ate one last week. JMHO

    I'm not going to keep any little ones i was concearned because of the way the slot limit is on the Reds. I generally release everything i catch but the wife wants me to bring something back to her next weekend when i am down that way.

    I did some looking for about 45 minutes and saw nothing - I knew if i posted here it wouldnt take long for an answer.

    thanks guys

    Just got my first black drum on Ocracoke today and he was about 4-5 lbs, delicious tender meat from the filets. Not what I was expecting at all!
