BLUEGILL "POPCORN"
« on: June 16, 2021, 10:28:00 AM »
Kid's didn't listen when you said they needed to stop catching Panfish, or you'll be up cleaning their mess of fish till way past midnight?

Here's an easy way to make a bunch of those Panfish, disappear in no time.  :drool:
 
2 lb. Fresh Bluegill Fillets.... Just Mix in the Batter (ingredients  below) and fry in Cast Iron Frying Pan of Canola Oil and enjoy!
(Beats "Shrimp on the Barbie" any day).  :chuckle:

1/8 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
2 or 3 shakes Tabasco hot sauce
3-4 cups self-rising corn meal
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
1/2 cold water

Never ate a bluegill.  Now I'm going to have to.  Usually just catch and release fun for the kids.

just a technicality, but that's not a bluegill, it's a pumpkinseed! :chuckle:

Fond memories of pulling gills off their beds with my gramps. He could not be bothered with bass, pike, or any other fish, as they were a waste of time. We had some amazing fish fries.

A Pumpkinseed ! Angry Perch, Are you sure?
I have eaten both Pumpkin Seeds and Watermelon Seeds (accidently, while laughing with my mouth full) aren't Pumpkin Seeds White? That looks more like a Watermelonseed to me.  :rolleyes:
Now I have been wrong before and must admit I am still a little "Wet Behind the blueGILLS" when it comes to Fish Identification.  ;)

Man this looks delicious.

Are there any smaller lakes on the west side with these guys? A place a guy with an inflatable raft might be able to go(or bank fish for that matter?)

This post has got me yearning for a fish fry.
