Mess of bluegills and a few trout
« on: December 19, 2011, 10:05:37 AM »
Hit mantua, got into a bunch of bluegills, couldn't keep em off the hook, then i beer battered and fried them at home!  good stuff.  I had never tried bluegill before, i was very pleased, it is such a sweet tender fish, even better than perch.  got into some trout too, the trout were not harmed, they were posed for a picture then returned to the deep.

That's the first time you've had bluegill?  :o   Man, have you been missing out!
 
If you get tired of them fried, you can make some "poor man's shrimp" with the fillets.  ;)   Boil the fillets up with some pickeling spice, chill, and then dip in cocktail sauce.  O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Yeah, my dad always said panfish were trash, so i always gave em to the mexicans and asians... he was always a trout elitest like most utahns. 

I'll have to try the poor mans shrimp, that sounds good!

I guess you probably haven't eaten the lowly catfish either, have you?  :knuppel2

i've had more catfish than you can shake a stick at, my grandma's bass pond had some and we have bullheads and channels planted in a lot of the local lakes and ponds.  I like it fried with lots of homemade tartar sauce!  i hate touching them though!

 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 Looks good, Dune!

 O0 O0 What BC says is right, too!

You just have to get used to handling catfish, the right way to handle them without getting horned. Bullheads are fantastic eating, one of my favorites. It's sure easy to get horned by them, even more so that channel cats. The smaller the catfish, the sharper the horns are.  :shock: :tickedoff :'(

Little tip on cleaning bluegills the easy way. Freeze them! We were on the ice one day and I ended up with a 5 gal bucket that froze solid. I figured I would lose them and no one else would take them so I took them home and cleaned them. there is no blood, slime or mess. I cleaned trhem at the kitchen sink and did not even catch the usual flack because there was no mess. It does take a good sharp knife like you said they got some tough bones I like to lightly dust them in salt and peppered flour and fry them in a cast iron skillet in butter with just a touch of bacon grease for a very heart healthy meal.

A buddy of mine used to work at one of the KDFWR fish hatcheries.  He always hated it when they had to get the little catfish out of the ponds.  He said that invariably, a few of those little critters would get inside his chest waders and they would stick you all the way down to your feet as they traveled down the waders.  ;D
