Small fish!

default Small fish!

Post by GB on 23rd September 2010, 2:48 pm

Have just read about a way to use the small fish one catches when fishing. NOT fishes that will grow bigger if you throw them back but things like bluegill that dont get that big to begin with.

Scale them, take of the head and tail and top fin and gut them and then grind them up for fish patties, bones and all.

Havnt tried it yet but will let you know how they are next time the kids and I go fishing! They will be thriled to be able to keep a few of the small fish that are all we seem to catch Laughing

A regional attitude? I mean fish like the "bluegill" and other "sunfish" also known as pan fish. OK, so maybe you need more than one per person, but they aren't too small to gut and then fry up.
