It was no fun pulling that fish out of the water in front of the fishermen that were standing around... I kinda caught heck... a LOT of heck.

Looks like it liked your stinkbait!
 Great looking camp fire vittles Jeanie. I was just thinking a wiki on how to undress a kitty would be fun.

Good looking nuggets and fries, Jeanie.  I probably would have thrown back the little one.

Now your fish is awesome as usual. Then on a campfire you create some of the greatest meals too. Now to the fish isn't there a size limit on catfish??? that one was so small that it didn't even have whiskers yet. In Fla I think there's a size limit on beers you can have with you and the rod can only be this long too. Then the bait has to be that big and the fish has to be this small and them you can have one of theses and two of those. But you have done another fine job there Jeanie.

Thanks meateater! That would make an interesting wiki!


Keith, I threw him back.. lol  Thanks!

Thank you Tyotrain, It's been less than a week and I wish I could go back. :)

Thanks Brian! They were sprinkled with fresh lemon juice first... then rolled in a cornmeal fish fry...no batter just the cornmeal/seasoning mixture. There was a bit of cayenne in the mix too so they had a slight bite to them. Went well with the cold beer. :)

Thanks Rob!

Bret, I should have used him as bait.. lol Thanks!

Thank you Bratrules

You too Johnny! It was a lot of fun...

lol mballi, that was the smallest fish I've ever caught... sometimes I can't believe my luck.


 Thanks!

Nice looking fish fry Jeanie. Seems you'd have to catch your bait before you can catch the big ones, right?

Looks great as always Jeanie and also very relaxing. I love the beer coolie "MINE"! No doubt who that belongs to.
 I won't give you any crap about the beer brand only that it is a lite beer.

By the way you are one busy girl/woman. I have been surfing some other BBQ and cooking sites and you are evrywhere girl. I am very proud that this seems to be your primary site other than your blog. Keep it coming!

If you ever make it to Florida I'd love to take you fishing for some Florida fish. Either by fishing reel or speargun, your choice. I guess that is the only way I would ever get to see what you look like.
