It's been a while since I posted here. Been busy with the new house and the wife's cancer treatments. Betty is doin a hundred percent now that the treatments are over. Moved in the new house 20th of Dec. Still hanging curtains and things.

I went giggin for suckers the other nite. It was my first time. I went with a couple of friends and our sons. Three fathers and three sons. The boys are 23 and have been friends since first grade.

It was cold out so we built a fire on the river bank and while three of us would make a 30 minute trip on the river giggin, the other three would eat hot dogs with home made jalapeno(sp)relish, chips and coffee. Then we would trade. We all made 3 trips around the portion of river we were giggin. We ended up with 44 suckers that nite.

As much as I liked the giggin, I think I liked the fire with my friends the best. We haven't done anything together like this since high school (32 years ago). Our boys are always out fishing and hunting but we don't have the time. I think it is about time I started doing more of this.

I'm thinking giggin is like we'd go fishing for suckers and smelt with a dip net (lake Michigan) when they were running (going up the creeks to spawn). We'd fry the front and my mother used to pickle the tail parts. They were like herring, but I remember not to over cook them or they'd fall apart. This was for the suckers. Darn good. Bill

we would get carp,buffalo,drum,and red horse.we would clean them that night and granny would pressure cook them the next day.
made for some good winter time suppers....carp cakes with fried taters and cornbread.
we went on spring river here in SW MO.

We cleaned them on the river too. I think they will deep fry them like catfish. I had them like that before and they are really good. If you score them down the sides, most of the little bones cook up to nothing.

We were on the Little St. Francios in se mo.
