Just a lazy day on the river, some cold beer and a good time. Here it is:

ETA the little river boat to the first post


Put in on the HISTORIC Suwannee River


Ride up the North Withlacoochee and check out an old water wheel structure fed by a spring.


Fish for a bit


Bring home my little share of keeper Red Bellies


Red Bellies, cheese grits and some homemade hushpuppies along with my dedicated boat gun and fillet knife


The aftermath

Nice!

Blue-Gills or Breem or whatever they call them are good to eat?

I used to catch and release tons of then as a kid growing up in NC. Half a loaf of stale Wonder-Bread and a bamboo pole was a Sunday afternoon entertainment

Best dinner pick yet without boobies involved.

I love fishing on the Suwanne river. My Dad has a house on the river near Branford. I go down several times a year to fish, and usually a week in the summer spent running up and down the river.
Great catch, Redbreast are the best eating bream swimming.

A true mans meal, you ate what you worked for, and none of all the stapler measuring device crap. Simple, yet effective.

How did you cook those fish? I usually only keep really big brim and filet them.

I give it a 9.9

Scale 'em, cut the head off, a slit down the belly and pull the organs out. Put some cornmeal, a bit of flour and some Lawry's in a brown paper sack, add the fish a shake. Deep fry in the oil of your choice for a couple of minutes then the skin peels right off or I know people that eat that also, it's all good Just watch out for the bones, you just strip the meat off with your fingers.

I don't care much for fish, but if I did, you'd get a 10.

Not taking any of my rifles with me in the river. Boating accidents ain't that uncommon around hear with all the rocks and old pilings under the surface. Of course technically in Florida I can open carry while fishing but didn't do it yesterday, all the little hippy kayakers and canoe people in the rivers and at the boat ramp would have flipped out I'm sure

mmm...cheese grits.

Red Breast out of the Swannee, Withlacoochee, and Aucilla rivers are probly the best tasting around. And of course best when freshly caught, cleaned and fried with hushpuppies and cheesegrits

+1 on the Taurus PT945 for a boat gun(mine's ported)

Great job Lanceman

One of the best fish I have ever eaten IMO. You have to work a bit for the meat but that makes it that much sweeter, pieces of heaven is what I have heard their flesh described as

Is the bridge in the second picture right there in Live Oak? I had a girlfriend at UF who was from Live Oak and we went down to a bridge in Live Oak that looked exactly like that. I won't say what we did there.
Link Posted: 4/11/2006 8:15:57 AM EDT
wait a minute - I used to be a hippie kayaker...

We used to eat bass and perch a lot (blue gill and sunfish), but once we got hooked on salt water fish it was really hard to go back.

I think it is a 1973 Chrysler 12.9 Hp. Still going strong, didn't have many hours on it when I got it and is in great shape.

Can you still get parts? My grandfather has (had?) an old Chrysler outboard that I've been thinking of asking my grandmother for.

I have no idea because I haven't needed any parts [knocking on wood] for it. A quick Google search [Chrysler outboard parts] brings up a bunch of companies that specialize in parts for these old outboards so it looks like they are out there. From everything I have read about them and experienced they are simple, tough, reliable, long lasting motors. If you have an old one that has been stored properly a carb rebuild, new plugs, change lower unit lube, tune up, etc may bring it right back to life. Good Luck

Sorry folks... fresh Red Snapper is the good lords gift to us fish eating mortals... all other fish is plain 2nd rate...

IMHO of course.

Dram out


Link Posted: 4/11/2006 6:32:51 PM EDT
I give it a 10...

That's right upstream from Little River isn't it? We used to cave dive there until they turned it into a concrete salad bowl. So we moved over to Peacock.

Very good eatin' fish, but I prefer white hominy and channel cats.

Being from MI I assume you have had walleye? Best fish IMO. But I do like all fish. Even bluefish if done right..
