Fry up some bacon, keep it far way from the bowfin.... Slice some homegrown tomatoes, slice some lettuce, real Mayo, etc... Toast some homemade bread.
Make BLT sammich, open up a cold can of Blu, and throw bowfin in the trash heap.
In Louisiana we called them choupique
(pronounced: shoe-pick). Look that up for some Cajun recipes.
Flathead is goujon.
Crappie is sac-au-lait.
Freshwater drum Is gaspergou.
You are welcome.
The good ol' boys on the IL River love those things. Not sure how they cook them, but they smoke just about any kind of fish there. I've had paddlefish and sturgeon smoked by them...
I'll say it again, I wouldn't be eating a shoe pick when you have so much sack-o-lay to choose from.
My bet is Oneshot has eaten one or more of them. Too bad he is gone from here. I talk to him every now and then. He’s doing ok I guess.
I love me some sac-au-lait.
Well it's gone. Was actually quite good. Texture was not like fish but had good flavor. Used Cajun Andy's seasoning and fried in clarified butter. Nate had 2nds and 3rds!
I rek’n a person could batter and fry just anout anything and make it edible.
I remember reading an article in the Conservation Magazine, they fried them fresh best I can remember and said they were good. Can't remember how long ago it was I seen it, years for sure. Them buffalo and grass carp are good smoked.
Never seen one let alone eat one. What body of water did you shoot it?
Was there any bones in it?
I’ve heard they’re good table fare. On the list to try this year.
The Mississippi has saline creek backing up a bit near kaskaskia. I shot it in some backwater there
It pretty much filleted like a bass. After removing the rib bones it was boneless
how's the Big Grin?
Believe it or not, I'm actually going on an expedition here in a few weeks with the express purpose of catching some of these on a the fly. They put up a terrific fight. Call me crazy.
If I catch enough of these to make me happy, I may try for Alligator Gar on the fly too. (I know, REALLY CRAZY!!) If I get an Alligar to bite, I hope it's a relatively small one, say, less than 30 pounds......
