As a follow up to that, I find grown men talking about ewww gross it's a slimy eelpout to be pretty dang funny.
I have a couple friends that need me to catch bullheads for them out of the live well when we are fishing for flatheads. They are scared of getting horned and the bullheads can sense their fear.
I pulled one out of a lake in Ontario from way too deep and it came up inside out. Figured I would give it a whirl. Did the poor man's lobster thing. Definitely not any man's lobster, but it was alright.
Fry it hard enough and it will taste like hard fried anything.
Fry up some of those fresh from the morning caught walleyes from Basswood Lake using Rob Nelson's secret batter. Add your fresh cut and fried up taters, bacon and onions and you have one heck of a meal for lunch! Then spend the afternoon fishing for bluegills, crappies and lake trout to take home with you. 😀
