Catch of the Day

2013-09-09-mitch-puppy drumThe only thing Mitch loves to do at the beach is go fishing. One of the many things we both enjoy to eat is fish…preferably Puppy Drum.  Recently one of those non-fishy tasting fish have finally found Mitch’s bait and took it. Of course Shadow was excited!

Puppy Drums are the young to Red Drums with can grow to be about 50 lbs. Most of the puppy drum that are caught range from 18″-25″

  1. Fish for dinner but I’m still waiting for a four footer.Even if I have to release it back to thee sea.

  2. Nice catch, Mitch! It just fits on your fillet board.
    You can’t keep the big ones?

    • No, we can’t keep any puppy drum over 27 inches.They have a slot limit of 18 inches to 27 inches. Any that are under 18 inches or over 27 inches have to be release. But I still want to catch a 4 footer even though I’ll have to return it to the sea.

  3. Mmmm… Yes! 😛

    Looks big enough to feed two!!! 🙂

    Well done Mitch! 😉

    Love and hugs!


  4. I’ve never heard of this type, Deb, but I’m sure it’s yummy! We love fish, too, and salmon is our favorite! Great photos! xoxo

    • They are yummy. They taste much like the fish you would get out of Long John Silver.
      Thanks Lauren

  5. Looks a lot like Florida Keys bone fish. Recommend a simple baked fillets with mayonnaise and paprika.

  6. Very cool. I bet they are good with a splash of lemon.

  7. O, yummy … how do you prepare the fish? Love, cat

    • You could bake is as Carl mentioned a few posts up, or you could fry is like I’m going to do this evening.
      Mix flour and cornmeal (cornmeal is to make it crispy) then fry it up. Serve with french fries and Col-slaw.

  8. I propose we change the name puppy drum to something less cute – LOL
    I think fishing would be fun & relaxing. Not sure about the prep part though.

    • I hear ya, Rosy! I don’t know why they call it anything cute, but they sure taste good!
      Mitch loves to fish. I find it rater boring until I actually hook one. Sometimes you have to wait hours to catch one.

  9. Nice catch Mitch. I haven’t been fishing for years. Got sick of not catching anything & quit

  10. I felt kinda sad when you mentioned Puppy….
    I mean I do realize how silly that is because it’s not a doggy puppy it was a “little kid” sort of puppy…
    Hope the fish tasted yummy! How do you cook the fish??

  11. I don’t know what that is, but I love fresh fist! Enjoy and nice catch.

  12. I don’t think I’ve had puppy drum before…
    looks great, though (especially when it’s so fresh)!

  13. Nice, Catch of the Day!…. I had fish yesterday for dinner too… 🙂

    Enjoy your weekend Deb, and great photo’s xox

  14. I’ve never heard of this type of fish before. I love freshly caught fish in the frying pan. 🙂

  15. Fish is good for you, which is lucky being that you have a master fisherman catching them for breakfast, dinner, tea and supper 🙂

    Have a fishy rest of evening Deb and Mitch 🙂
