Little Bit or Little Bait

Saturday marked the big day for Little Bit to catch her first fish. The catfish is as big as she was when she was born, I think. Definitely as long as she was and perhaps close to her six pounds or so. :) She loved fishing, but was a bit grossed out at the prospect of holding it with her thumb in its mouth. She also caught the little sandbass, too.
I love that unsure smile at having to hold it.
Hot Rod caught two sandbass and was disappointed that his sister caught a bigger fish than him.
Holding all four fish took a little bit of muscle from the boy.
Little Bit wasn't sure she wanted to watch dad clean the fish at first.
Then, she got into it as dad showed her all the internal organs, etc. Now, that made good fun for her and the boy. Good eats, too. We fry 'em up using Rice Krispies as the breading. I think Hot Rod ate half of the fish all by himself.

    Well done Little Bit! My great-granny taught me how to clean fish. I wish I remembered HOW to do it now, but I'm glad I still remember the time spent with her.

    "Rice Krispies as the breading"

    Intriguing idea - thank you, I will try this in the future.
