    I love to fish and we have this cool pond right in our backyard. The dog loves to eat the fish after I catch and cook them. A few nights ago Rod was mowing and he fishbait (grasshoppers) were trying to get away from the mower. I saved them for the hook. Well I caught only two fish a bass & a bluegill. I hate to clean the little buggers so not wanting to make a mess w/ two measley fish I decided to simply stick'm in the freezer until I could catch some more. Rod told me that I would be murdering them. Of course I asked so uh taking a knife to their heads isn't murdering them? He responds no that is butchering them. Hem, I murdered the grasshoppers too?

    So last night caught about ten more bluegill. Guess who got to murder them?

    I couldn't even BEGIN to count all the Blue Gills I've scaled and butchered ready for the frying pan with my paw and grand parents. They'd catch pan fish, Blue Gills, Sunfish, Crappies, etc by the BUCKET LOAD! It was all worth it come fish fry night. Nothing like a plate full of fresh caught pan fish... :eusa_drool:

    Once a year I get together with a few high school buddies for a fishing trip. We rent a cabin for the week. It's a riot. Been to Wisconsin, Michigan, Kentucky. Next year maybe Arkansas.

    I used to fish as a kid, but now I keep fish for pets and would feel horribly guilty killing their wild cousins. I don't mind eating them if someone else murdered them tho. :)

    Bluegill is the best eating for fresh water fish IMO. Down in the Everglades IMO, those Mangrove Snappers are the best, don't put ur finger by their mouth they have big teeth. (I can only eat a lil bit as I'm allergic to seafood)

    Blue Gill does have a unique flavor. It's almost a "sweet" fish. It is one of my favorites as well. It's pretty customary for the bars around here in Wisconsin to have a "Friday Fish Fry," and there's one bar/restaurant near me that serves Blue Gill. It's farm raised and you get two huge fillets. It's real good but it's not as good as caught fresh.

    Sorry to hear you're allergic to sea food, man, most of the places serving fish around here serve "all you can eat." I usually have seconds. I can eat the shit otta fish... :lol:
