Last Thursday at Monticello it was warm, cloudy and windy. Just right for feeding Bowfins (a.k.a. Grinnels, Grindles and Dogfish)

We caught a few bass as well.

I couple of those have some decent color to them. I have caught quite a few over the years, but only one with a lot of iridescent coloring to it.

One of my biggest stomach drops was from reeling in one of those at Fork. It was big! It probably weighted about 8lbs or more and I thought for sure I had a 12 lb bass on my line. Was so mad when I saw it! Those things are fugly!

If you fillet them and wrap them in bacon put a jalapeno inside and some cheese. Cook them on the grill until golden brown....
They still taste like $h!*
Hope you killed them they are bass nest raiders!

I beg to differ on the taste. I have eat lots of em. Truthfully they really don't have any taste at all. The texture of the meat is what is strange. It is kinda like eating a cotton ball. As far as taste they are really pretty good if you can stand the texture of the meat.


Set the hook first, ask questions later!!!

Oh by the way, I fry mine just like catfish. I've never tried to grill one. The meat falls apart VERY easy.
