Gearing up for my trip!

Postby Xi Bowhunter » Thu Sep 27, 2007 8:17 am

I leave in exactly one week for a fall Florida vacation. Needless to say I can't wait. We are going to Panama City Beach, and i plan on doing lots of fishing. To get my self ready, I have been collecting all my gear and making sure it is in proper order. I have also been scanning over some of my pictures from previous years, and I thought I would share them with you. here they are:

Looks like you are ready for some fun, what do you do with all those fish? Do you give them a way or bring them home and freeze them? I hope that I can go fishing with my brother in Fort Myers this spring.

I fillet, clean, and freeze them so I can bring them home.

How many pounds of meat do you get from a good fishing trip? I have caught lots of walleye and freeze them. I have never fished the ocean, what do you think is the best tasting fish that you have caught?

We got about 75 lbs of meat from that trip, and that is pretty good. The best tasting ocean fish I would say would be grouper or mahi-mahi. But we catch a lot of little sand sharks off the beach behind the condo, and those are very tasty as well.

I cook them in aluminum foil. First, I wash the fish, lay it in aluminum foil, and lightly coat the fish with olive oil. Then I season in old bay seasoning, and a lemon. Then I finish wrapping the fish in the aluminum foil, and either cook in the foil on the grill or in the oven.

Xi, are you back yet, and if you are how did you do this time?
