One Fish, Two Fish, Striped Fish, Blue Fish

I don’t know where the time goes. Lately, each day it seems I run out of time before I get a chance to blog., too much work, too many weeds, too much rain. Tuesday was a workday but I skipped out of that, got up at the ridiculous hour of 4 am and I went fishing with my brother. I was lucky and that night got to have fish for supper. Outside of sand sharks these were the largest fish I’ve ever caught. I won’t say how large because they seem to continue to grow larger and larger with each telling of the story. You can see for yourself below in a photo of my brother holding the two striped bass that I caught that were keepers and a closeup a bluefish I caught who is giving me the evil eye. I was so tired from getting up at 4am that I just baked the striped bass with a little butter and didn’t do anything fancy to it. It was yummy, but if I hadn’t been so exhausted I’d have headed over to Beyond Salmon to get a more interesting recipe. I gave some away and froze the rest of the filets. I really have little experience freezing fish and am curious to see what it tastes like in a few weeks after it has been in the freezer.

  1. Those are huge! I know what you mean about the time getting away. I thought I'd been very good about keeping up with my blog and today I posted and realized it's been a week since my last post. I could have sworn I only missed one day last week.
