Did I mention fish??
|This is a Grennal, or
it's proper name is"Bowfin"
I don't know how big they get but this one is over 10 lb
We were going to mount this one, then we saw it wasn't a bass
I'm not sure on the spelling of Grennal.
|Bowfin (Amia Calva), better known by its Cajun name "Choupique" is not related to, but is even more ancient than the sturgeons. This bony fish yields a black roe with a distinctive lively flavor and makes a good, less expensive substitute for sturgeon caviar. (Unlike sturgeon, bowfin roe will turn red if heated.)|
