Congrats

That is a really nice fish! I was in San Antonio for 3 years and never caught my first. Hope to head back to TX from my current assignment and get some Reds. Congrats again!

Is the tag on its tail this:
Red drum special regulation: During a license year, one red drum over the stated maximum length limit may be retained when affixed with a properly completed Red Drum Tag and one red drum over the stated maximum length limit may be retained when affixed with a properly completed Bonus Red Drum Tag. Any fish retained under authority of a Red Drum Tag or a Bonus Red Drum Tag may be retained in addition to the daily bag and possession limit as stated in this section.

If so how much do those things cost?

A quick search of Texas regs yielded:

Red Drum Tag:
This tag is required for an individual to take one red drum per license year over the maximum length limit of 28 inches, and is included free with the purchase of a saltwater fishing stamp endorsement or any package that includes the saltwater fishing stamp endorsement. See tagging information. Persons who want to obtain a red drum tag and are EXEMPT from fishing license requirements may purchase an Exempt Angler Red Drum Tag for $3.
Bonus Red Drum Tag (Type 599): $3
This tag is required for an individual to take an additional red drum per license year over the maximum length limit of 28 inches. After using the original Red Drum Tag, a person may purchase a bonus tag at any license sales location upon presenting a valid fishing license or other valid personal identification. Only one bonus tag allowed per person per year. No person may have in possession both a Red Drum Tag or Duplicate Red Drum Tag and a Bonus Red Drum Tag issued to the same license holder.
