Davey Baby and Sawyer were slaying the White Perch this morning! They know White Perch is my favorite fresh water fish to eat. It’s nice white meat that doesn’t smell or taste ‘fishy’. Sawyer phones me from the boat landing all excited. “Mom, you are going to be so surprised when we come home!” He may be only 11 years old, but he’s already taking pride in putting fresh, nutritious food on the table for the family (or at least for mom!)
Sometimes they may only catch one or two. When that happens I will freeze the fillets until they catch more. I continue this process until we have enough for a fish fry. This morning’s catch was unusually good. They caught 12 fish and had a whole lot of fun doing it!
If you are knew to filleting Perch, this video is a great resource: http://youtu.be/b5nQ1Af6oEw
We’ve found that a dozen White Perch equals 1 lb. of fresh fish fillets.
I think Davey Baby has mastered the art of the ‘Fish Fry’. Yum!
