OK Verdemontis, Red Will Blog On, Just Not As Often

Thanks Matt and J.D. for you kind words. Verdemontis you make one heck of a point, why not just post less often? Between nights and weekends I should be able to come up with the time for a post or two a week. The root of the problem is I have this love/hate relationship with technology. I love the ease with which technology allows people to stay in touch, communicate, and share ideas and perspectives. But I hate having to sit inside at the computer to do it. Makes me feel kind of caged.


I'll be back at it soon, first I've got to fillet the 60 or so bullpout I caught the other night. Some for my grandfather, parents, in-laws, sister's family, and other sisters family. Right now they're in water filled tubs that I keep changing the water in. I swear it makes them taste even better. There's a reason they call bullpout the fillet mignon of the fish world.

Removed those last two psts due to my horrible spelling.. what I meant to say was...Ok, what's a bullpout, and how did you catch 60 of them? I gotta let my brother know, he spends every waking moment fishing, and is damn good, too.

J.D. sorry, its kind of my fault too. I like so many others refer to bullpout, but their real name is Brown Bullhead. They look kind of like a small catfish, and you catch them at night. Ball up some worms on a hook with a sinker and cast your line into a creek or lake nearby a swamp. Spring is their spawning time, and best chance to catch a bunch. I fillet and freeze them in water to eat the rest of summer. Best places I know to catch them are on Northwest Vermont, Lake Carmi, lake Champlain. There is a fishing access across from Sandbar Sate Park that sees a lot of action, but prime bullpout season is past. Really should be able to catch them in most lakes in the state though.

So are they actually a catfish? How big are they?

no. not really a catfish, they just look the part. Probably average about 10-14 inches long, have seen 18 inchers though.
