Best way to eat them

Fri, 2009-07-31 20:20

Is to get a big pot boil the fish whole with a house brick for three days ,drain and season the brick to suit your taste and eat .


So tell me have you got your info from years on the water or hours on the internet?

If your neighbour keeps asking you for a feed of fish give them that,they will probably never ask you again,which may be a good thing!!

tasted like thongs


getting the bottom line final answer from a bunch of blokes that use false names and put smiley faces at the end of paragraphs is not the best place in the world to get the information you seek.
