I was in Diamond Shoals last night for dinner and they had Red Drum on the menu.
I thought they stopped commerical fishing for them?
They can be kept as a bycatch.. Not sure how many,I think 5 in the slot... They must have a certian percentage,I think 75% (don't quote me on that) has to be other keepable sellable fish....

Commercial Catch...

It's either 5 or 7 in the slot that they are allowed. Redfish usually are bicatch on trout or flounder nets. With the ability to keep only 5 or 7, you aren't going to see commecial guys target them, unless they are working illegally.
