    Went to Old Hic and fished and fought the wind, caught 7 nice eater cats. The bite was short, I was using cut shad on the bottom in cedar creek and in the mouth of station camp creek.Sorry no pics the camera is out of town.:big_smile:

    Good report, Kevin. I would have liked to fish today, but unfortunately can't. Did you keep the fish?

    Yeah, we have a lot of mercury, PCBs, and radiation in most of my catfish water. About the only place I'll keep a fish out of is the Emory or Little Emory River, far upstream from Kingston Steam Plant.

    Yeah, I worked at the Hartsville plant at the time the cooling towers were being built. I transferred out of there in 1979. Some of the farmers in the area said their dairy cattle stopped giving milk when they started building that plant. :smile2: Glad to see it was never finished.

     
  9. Good job Kevin.:big_smile:

    I put the boat in yesterday from 11 am to 3 pm and got skunked.:embarassed::angry::smile2:

    Etouffee is like a stew..The most common type of etouffe is crawfish but it can be made with just about any meat..Etouffe is usually made with a light colored roux..It must always have the "holy trinity"(onions,green pepper and celery)..It is almost like gumbo but the sauce is thicker..It is one of my favorite cajun dishes..Especially with crawfish..

    Etouffe ? ROUX????????????????? Hell my driveway is made of roux. -------------------------------------I know, I know, it is a browned flour base used in gravy and other concoctions that only a southern hillbilly would come up with.

    Man we are close heck just through the woods to each others house.I am over off of Windrow where the taxidermy shop was/is.I think Bryants grove area would be a good place to have a meet and eat thing.We could have some donate fish and then everyone bring a covered dish and bet it would be a great big spread.
