Took the tube out on Lake Athens today. It was a good day on the water. Took about 2 dozen nice sunfish. Lately I've been fishing for fun but the fetching and charming Mrs. Chief wanted fish for supper so who am I to refuse such a request from such an incredible lady. I ended up keeping these:



The cutting board is 12 inches wide so that give an idea of the length. Call them 6-8 inches. I took several that were bigger but I like to release the brood fish. I also lost a good fish under a boat house. I'm pretty sure it was a channel cat from the way it fought but I never saw it. It wrapped on a piling and when you use 4 lb line that usually means a lost fish. I also had a big largemouth try to eat one of my sunfish. I'm not really a bass fisherman but it looked to be at least 8 lbs. I didn't have a single bit of bass type gear so I never tried to switch tactics to try for him but I'm betting if I had a floating Rapala I probably could have got it to hit. It wanted that sunfish bad!

It was a good day to be alive in East TX. Cheers Y'all.

These ones were filleted and then got a buttermilk bath and were coated in panko bread crumbs and fried to a golden brown. Served with corn and french fries. I make a cocktail sauce with jalapeno ketchup and a lot of horseradish, a dash of hot sauce and a nice shot of lemon juice that works really good with sunfish. Lets just say they were down right TASTY!
