Do you love big bluegill?
Come on down...I'm going nowhere buddy....somebody has to show you around!
sounds great! those fliers are so cool.
My cats get a few, and the rest go to the woods to feed the possums and what ever else need a meal that night.
OK, you have convinced me. After sixty five years of doing it the way Grandpa did it, I am going to give your way a try. A bunch of us are going on a Bluegill fishing trip for a week corresponding with the first full moon in June. Most all the local to the area are Game Fishermen and consider Bluegills childs play. (Boy, am I glad I never grew up!) The little motel where we stay allows us to set up our cookers outside and have a down home fish fry, consisting of Fried Bluegills, hand mixed and dropped hushpuppies, handmade coleslaw, southern style rice, sliced onions and potatoes fried in the fish grease, washed down with homemade southern style sweet iced tea or a Pepsi. We invite the motel staff and the guest (mostly fishermen) to join us. This trip, I am gonna filet some of the gills. However, instead of disposing of the center section, I think I will remove the heads, clean em up, bread em, fry em and suck the meat off the bones. Thank the Good Lord I was born and raised country and in the south!!
i still have a northern,,, of 36 inches my PB in my moms freezer since 1983... i guess im going to have a replica made and throw out the carcass ... shell never know.
Mine go out behind my woodshop. They are usually gone by morning and if there any left, the crows eat them. So, no waste of anything.
Dump them back in my pond . catfish love them .
