filleted on the boat and kept on ice to be cooked fresh they are very tasty
Thanks for the response and like in Michigan we call them a dogfish or mudfish.
I think I have my answered and I guess they don't have any Mud fish , Cypress Bass , Cypress Trout , Bow fin , Dog fish , Mud Pike , Griddle , Grinnel or Choupique in Louisiana.
I have heard most of the above names. Usually bow fin or grinnel in north Louisiana. South Louisiana = choupique (Cajun) or cotton fish (red neck).
Ate some fish balls made with choupique one time and they were very good. I'm lazy and the preparation process was pretty lengthily so we have not tried to cook any our self.
They do put up a respectable fight, but can be very hard on tackle. They are strong and can even pull a rod and reel overboard(never to be found) if the rod is laid across the gunnels of a pirogue while trying to release one. :shock: :x Always secure the rod inside the boat. (Don't ask me how I know this :lol: )
The water levels and fishing success have been up and down recently, but always fun to go.
Hard not to enjoy being on the bayou:
Or catching these(2lb./13oz. a very Kentucky around these parts):
Good going, Grampa!
Sometimes you have to share the water with another fisherman:
Beautiful bird. They're around on Michigan waters now too. As a kid, I dreamed of maybe seeing one in the Rockies or Sierras, but not here, in the Great Lakes area. Bald eagles and osprey are the experts. I'm just a toy out there.
