Yes, in the cake section, all different colors also :P

I have one or two gallon bags of crappie in the bottom of the deep freeze yet. I will be heading to Arkansas in a couple months to replenish the crappie supply. I hope to do more fishing this year. There are to many projects around the homestead that get in the way of fun time. :roll: Grrr

As I recall, if it is cooked in a pot with water it is called "Cajun". :D
Have a buddy from Louisiana that I was in the service with. Hadn't seen him in 14 years and my wife flew him in for my birthday last month. He brought a bunch of stuff and cooked the whole time he was here.

I was going to ride down to LA last summer and he warned me not to sit at a light too long "Cause some crazy "coon-ass" is likely to throw you in a pot!" :mrgreen:

Is that your buddies definition :D

Sounds like a lot of slap your mammas going on down there in LA :mrgreen:

I'll have to do some googlin
While Lower Louisiana had been settled by French colonists since the late 18th century, the Cajuns trace their roots to the influx of Acadian settlers after the Great Expulsion from their homeland during the French and Indian War (1754 to 1763). The Acadia region to which modern Cajuns trace their origin consisted largely of what are now Nova Scotia and the other Maritime provinces, plus parts of eastern Quebec and northern Maine. Since their establishment in Louisiana the Cajuns have developed their own dialect, Cajun French, and developed a vibrant culture including folk ways, music, and cuisine.

The Cajuns retain a unique dialect of the French language and numerous other cultural traits that distinguish them as an ethnic group. Cajuns were officially recognized by the U.S. government as a national ethnic group in 1980 per a discrimination lawsuit filed in federal district court. Presided over by Judge Edwin Hunter, the case, known as Roach v. Dresser Industries Valve and Instrument Division (494 F.Supp. 215, D.C. La., 1980), hinged on the issue of the Cajuns' ethnicity. Significantly, Judge Hunter held in his ruling that:

“ We conclude that plaintiff is protected by Title VII's ban on national origin discrimination. The Louisiana Acadian (Cajun) is alive and well. He is 'up front' and 'main stream.' He is not asking for any special treatment. By affording coverage under the 'national origin' clause of Title VII he is afforded no special privilege. He is given only the same protection as those with English, Spanish, French, Iranian, Portuguese, Mexican, Italian, Irish, et al., ancestors.

I thought they were Scots-Irish, in Nova Scotia, who moved into Louisana Territory because of the French and Indian war.

Their cuisine, music, and language is distinctive.

Wiki says: French seeking refuge in a French governed territory.

Maybe I am thinking of the peopling of the Appalachian mountain region by immigration and the origin of folk music there?

I guess you can tell I haven't been to that part of the world.

Those redfish look "mighty good eating" by the way. What species are redfish?

Tell us more about your best fishing day :D How many did you catch? What made the day so special?

Look at the photos and see how big they get............monters!!! I bet they got some good chunky cheeks to be harvested and eaten raw in the half shell.

Simplepeddler, that was cool when i was eating my filets I was able to reflect back on what you had said about preparing them on the half shell. The sheet of scales forming a half shell. First time I've heard of that term used for fish. I always thought of it being used for clams/oysters.

Connie, I can picture you catching a lake trout the size of some of those big ones on your yoyo reel. I think I recall the instructions say do not attach to kayak or arm etc. :o
