    It was wonderful, I almost went swimming. The Dead trees you see accross the lake are from a fire that went through the area about 5 years ago. Its coming back very nicely.

    The best fish I ever ate was the fish I caught when I was about 15-16 (53 now!). Mostly, we fished in Scioto Brush Creek, which fed the Scioto River, which fed the Ohio River, which...... oh well, you get the idea. Fish of all species could be found in Brush Creek so our aggregate stringer (4-5 boys) would look something like this after an all-nighter:

    Warmouth bass
    pumpkinseed sunfish
    Kentucky Spotted Bass
    Yellow-bellied Catfish (mud cats)
    Largemouth bass
    sauger
    white bass
    channel catfish
    bluegills
    eel
    sheepshead (freshwater drum)
    carp
    shovelhead catfish
    black crappie
    green sunfish
    white crappie
    northern pike
    smallmouth bass
    longnosed gar
    freshwater mussels (many species)
    snapping turtle
    (couple of bullfrogs -- we always went gigging on all-nighters)


    We ate everything except for the carp, gar and eels. Those danged eels would be 4 feet long and meaner than a rattlesnake! We HAD to eat the sheepshead because they would get mushy if you tried to freeze them, even inside a block of ice.

    We decided (after much debate) to eat some of an eel one night and I fried it but that just is NOT the way to prepare eel -- plus the idea of it sort of got to all of us anyway.

    We would fillet everything and have a feast at about noon each day -- we spent our entire summers on the creek bank and I got pretty darn good at frying fish. icon_wink.gif We always cleaned the turtle, mussels and bullfrogs and made our own "freshwater boullibaise", filching tomatoes from a convenient nearby garden icon_redface.gif cooking it in an old stockpot right there on the creekbank too.

    I posted my tried and true fried catfish recipe recently on Zaar and I'll share it again with you now -- this one is pretty much down to a science:

    Pat's Pan-Fried Catfish

    I still fix it once in awhile because about the only fishing I do nowadays is by trotline, which I run for 3 days in the Spring of the year. That stocks me up on catfish for the entire year.


    When I'm feeling really lazy and someone brings me a nice mess of fresh fish (bass or saugeye usually), I fillet them, cut them into chunks and go the beer batter route, cooking the fish outdoors. I use the lazy man's recipe, Big Pat's Beer Batter Fish (not posted on Zaar yet): 1 can of Sprite (or regular beer), 1 egg (optional), enough Aunt Jemima's pancake mix to work up a thin batter, and a little seasoned salt. Dip 'em and drop 'em into the hot peanut or canola oil, 5 or 6 chunks at a batch until golden brown.

    My daughter always says that my beer batter fish tastes just like Long John Silver's Fish but not so greasy as theirs. It does taste very close and, for that reason, I use malt vinegar on these fish at the table when I'm eating them. Very good stuff!

    Ah, but those were the good days (and nights) there on Brush Creek, where I still live! icon_lol.gif

    Hey Boneman, so sorry I missed this post, but it made me LOL and I wanted to add my "Jersey" fishing method.

    We grew up on the Deleware River, in a high banked area. We all had poles and scrambled down the bank with nothing but a dipsea, hook and a worm.

    First cast went out shallow with the worm, let it sit till you catch an eel (ours were about a foot long)

    Keep the head of the eel on the hook, cut off the body and cast DEEP. This is where the big Catfish are. Those are good eats.

    Love the growing up story, I feel the same way.

NICE FISH![/quote]You know we have been debating this, and we are calling it a smally because it has no stripes like the largemouths around here. Is there something else I shold be looking for?
