The title of this post reminded me waking up after a long night of drinking....
but dang them look good I love deep fried fishies only thing I see missing is some hush puppies oh and that special kool-aid :)

Wow Jeanie - your plate looks perfect - you do a great job frying fish. Is that just cornmeal? Our crappie fishermen are out in full force.

Always look forward to your "after" camping post! Looks awesome as usual especially breakfast with backstrap....mmmmmm

I love camping as long as it is cool enough to need a fire. I hate cooking over an open fire in 90 degree heat. Love the camping spot too.

I laugh every time I see a catfish on a stringer. When I was a youngster and My Dad would take me fishing, as soon as I caught the first catfish, I would stop, start a small fire, gut the fish and throw it on the coals (the skin keeps it moist and juicy). It used to drive my Dad crazy, especially if we were in a boat because he would have to drop me off to cook. He never could understand why I couldn't wait till the end of the days fishing to eat. Those days and Dad are long gone but the memories live on.
Thanks for the laugh and the memory.

lol Kinky, thanks! I didn't have hush puppy ingredients with me but did have potatoes.. and that special kool aid. :)

cowgirl said...

Thanks Larry!
I made a mix of cormeal, flour, cayenne, salt and lemon pepper. Used it on the tatoe slices too.
I envy your crappie fisherman. :)

cowgirl said...

Thank you TJ! I agree with you about campfire cooking and hot weather. :)
Hope all is well with you!

cowgirl said...

Marc, thank you! I just fried them in a cast iron skillet over the fire.
They are tasty when caught fresh. :)

cowgirl said...

Haha K.. Great story!! Glad it brought back good memories for you. :)

cowgirl said...

David thanks! I thought about posting but the pictures seemed to say it all. :)

Interesting arsenal in the tackle box, and all organized, too. Must be a girl thing.. :) My tackle box looks like a bomb went off several years ago. Nice looking fish and grub... I have never had benedict for breakfast when I've been camping, but then again....Oh Well!!
I'm a purdy good tracker, could you leave a trail of bread crumbs next time...:)

cowgirl said...

Nick I hope you get to go soon! :)
My ipod has a big mixture of everything..
I have old rock, blues, some country, lately I've been listening to a lot of Joe Bonamassa.
I'm always open to suggestions. If you have a favorite, I'd be interested!
I just looked at my ipod.. I have everything from the "Red Dirt" Oklahoma bands to Stephan Grappelli. lol
I love music. :)

Thanks Nick. :)

cowgirl said...

Thanks Linda! They were soooo tasty :)
Hope you are having a great week!

cowgirl said...

PaulB it depends on the weather.
There is a picture of my tent in the "camping in Texas" post in my favorites list.
Hope all is going well with you!

cowgirl said...

Haha Rick! You should have seen the tackle box before the campout. It was too heavy to carry. lol
I even have more than one of them.

You need to try that campfire benedict.. the smokey flavor is hard to beat. ( but then I like everything cooked over a campfire)

I'll leave those crumbs next time.

Great post...I like it!!!
At my lake are catfish hard to catch.
There are more pikes and carps.
Your fried fish looks great.
I bet it was really tasty

Hey that´s like Bonamassa too!!
He is greeeeeaaaat..I love his music

tight lines Chris

cowgirl said...

Thanks Chris!! :)
I like your fishing pictures too. Those were some nice carp you caught. I really like your chair. I've not seen any like that over here.
I love Bonamassa... I listened to "Woke Up Dreaming" this morning. :)
Glad you like his music too Chris!

Tight lines!

Old Smoke said...

OK! OK! I admit it ALL of my tackle boxes are a mess. :)

cowgirl said...

lolol Rick... I'm glad to hear it! So are mine. :)

Mrs. JP said...

That looks like a good time! I never learned how to skin a catfish--I think it's because Daddy didn't like to do it :O) Oh, how I love fried fish, that and smoked are my favs.
So, you're having some decent weather there I assume.

cowgirl said...

Thanks Mrs JP, it was a nice short trip. :)
I'm not fond of cleaning fish either but they are sooo tasty. :)
It's starting to warm up here but not as green and pretty as your area. Your yard looks beautiful! :)

Smokomotive said...

I like "Woke Up Dreaming" too.
It´s a very special song. I love the live version.

YES my carps!!!
It was the first time this year I was out for fishing
It was cold but so wonderful.
I like the fog in the morning.
It´s nice to see the world comes alive.
I´m looking forward to catch some pikes sometime.
Pike all other fish are bait......!!! LOL

well...the chair, it´s a simple carp chair.
It´s really confortabel.
I crushed other chairs, but this one is strong enough to bear my weight ;-)

cowgirl said...

Chris I love the live version too! :)
I bet it was really pretty out there, watching the fog..
haha.. yes pike would be nice to catch. I've not been pike fishing but bet I would like it!
Your carp chair looks like a nice one.. nice and sturdy too. :)
Hope you get to go pike fishing soon Chris!
Thanks :)
