I eat drum a few times a week. If you have a 20lb plus drum yes cut the vein line out. As for worms, most of them are in the tail. I caught a 23lb drum that only had 3 worms on one side of the meat and I just plucked them out with the fillet knife. I did cut out the vein line but mainly because the fillets were huge and there was plenty of size left on the fillets....On smaller ones like 5lbs or less you don't have to cut the vein out and it will not effect taste what so ever.
I cook all my drum in one of these ways... I bread and fry them like catfish or cast iron blackened in olive oil and butter with Tony's seasoning. I've never had a bad tasting drum leaving the vein line in on any of the smaller ones......
