Bucket list: Catch a fish and eat it

December 30, 2014

I checked off one of my bucket list items yesterday: catching a fish, cleaning it, and eating it.

This was the last day of a family vacation in Port St. Lucie in Florida. My original plans to go deep sea fishing fell through, so I went to the surprisingly well-stocked local Walmart to pick up some freshwater gear. I was lucky enough to nab a healthy-looking 15" largemouth bass with a silver Mepps spinner from the lake behind our timeshare.

My mom, being Korean, knows a thing or two about preparing a whole fish, so I undertook the cleaning and cooking under her supervision. We had it for dinner, and suffice to say, it was delicious.
