hmm, just looked at google photos and you may be correct,
mine look more like hybrids than white or black.

Right on!

I am very happy to see this type of livin' goin on for fellow folks.

I caught the thread about the new property a little bit ago, and was impressed!


So glad you found a lil spot there.

Everyone should look into this.

LandandFarm.com is a good place for ideas and inspiration.


:rasta: I agree 100%. I hope to be living like this sooner rather than later.

Hippie, thanks for describing life on the farm. It's kind of like I get to live vicariously through your posting.

no man, they were biting as fast as i could bait and cast,
had to get out of the water to grab a smoke.
lemme see, took about 4 hours in all
but i had to make a bait run which took 45 minutes
so i'd say averaged about 1 fish every 2.5 minutes,
which sounds about right.
filled 2 of those wire baskets full,
the cooler was full to the brim once loaded all in.

One of those days you never forget.

First week of June my little bro gets out after doing ten...

We're going striper fishing in my old stomping grounds.

A good day fishing is just a little slice of heaven.

Funny thing, grew up in Florida eating lots of black bass, blue gill, shell crackers, specks (both crappie and sea trout), and a plethora of oceon going fish. Moved to Tennessee in the 80's, changed over to smallmouth, walleye and trout. Always heard that striped bass weren't good to eat so really never fished for them. Curiosity got the best of me, plus they filled the need to catch a bigger fish, that would bring me back to my ocean going youth. Well needless to say they have turned into my all time favorite fish, on the end of a rod and on the plate, just have to clean them properly, dispose of all red meat, cut into peices and broil or fry. Some people still think i'm crazy when i tell them that i eat them, but not the ones that have tried them.

By the way Hip, that is a nice catch, it doesn't get better than that.

recipe perchance ?

Mom used to make this for me as well, I can't remember the exact recipe, but i remember the ingredients for her version, experiment to get the right consistency, should be pretty thin, but thick enough to stick to the fish.

I think i'm going to do some experimenting with recipe next time I land a good catch, and will be able to get more specific.

Pour beer in bowl and let sit for a little while.
add bizquick mix slowly to get proper consistency, thin but sticky.
add a little finely chopped parsly and a touch of garlic powder.

This reminds me, we used to seine our own bait in the local creek here in Tennessee mostly what are known locally as topwater minnows and horneyhead minnows, but there was a stretch of deeper rocky shaded water that used to give up a bumper crop of extra large craw daddies. Didn't take us long till we were peeling the tails and and dipping them in this batter and frying them up. Damn good, best little poppers around.
