Southern supper

Postby newoldglory » Tue Jan 20, 2015 8:47 pm

I deep fried 4 good size blue gills and boiled up some good old fashioned grits for supper. 8) A few banana peppers and beer and a shot or to of shine and I am ready for two days off from pay to enjoy life as I know it. :cheers: I'll cook up some wild life tomorrow and get a lot of work done around the camp and maybe even do some bass fishing. :thumbleft: Bass is getting good in 2A now. The water is dropping and the fish are coming to the canals. :D That's a lot more than the concrete jungle could ever have to offer. :thumbleft:

:proud: :old_glory: :usa: :florida: :rebel:

Bass fishing is getting really good over here. Austin and his buddy caught 43 bass yesterday working the canals and ponds around Country Club. He's dying to get back out so look forward to another visit soon. BTW, thanks again for letting us stay the other night. Will bring out some coffee to replace the cups we used to shake off the shine. ;)

It's just hard to beat fried bream & grits IMO.

Hand size is perfect, but we have been known to fry'em up a little smaller...Dad called'em "fryhards" :)

You can't put garfish on the table with out the guava. :roll: I checked the tree yesterday on the way home and they are out of season. :(

And yes, we do fry hard's here often. I love those crunchy little critters. Even small frogs and front legs. I deep fried a curly tail lizard and it has a great beefy taste. You can catch them in parking lots with light tackle. Get'cha some.

Might as well grill you up some Iguana, plenty of them around, and pretty tasty too!
