In the wise words of my manager, “One person’s not gonna eat 25 bluegill in one sitting.”

I had an image of pegasi lining up on the dock like the seagulls in Finding Nemo, and everything went from there.


There’s not much needed to say factually for this one. IRL, I’ve been doing edits on stuff and figuring out how to format it and then submit it to Lulu, and there was an ever-pervasive sense of if I’m not doing that I’m wasting my time, but a man’s gotta write, so I took some time out of frantic last-minute editing, and for better or worse, y’all are reading the result.

I was expecting ablog post about Bronycon, then I realised it was the "bonus materials" blog post showing up before the story.

Well, at least I don't think it got spoiled too much.

How do fishermen do it? I just got a larger USB drive, but the hole for a lanyard or keychain connector is too small for all of my connectors, so I went out in 90 degree weather during road construction season when it takes an hour to go a couple miles and got a spool of fishing line. I have some sailing experience and am not totally unfamiliar with knots, but I can't seem to manage to tie the ends of a loop together. The line doesn't have any friction. I'm tempted to just do a basic double-overhand knot or reef knot and drip solder over it to hold it in place. Or a dab of superglue.

I've just been introduced to the concept of a creel, and I don't get it.

So...you just stick your fish in a basket? So they immediately start to rot in the heat? Every fish I've ever seen being caught has been kept in water, either being leashed through the gills or stuck in a bucket, so they don't die until you're ready to haul them home. When it's time to go, they get killed and put on ice, something that notably is not well contained by wicker products. How is a creel even a feasible solution for fish-holding, unless you have a handy flock of pegasi to ensure that your catch will not go bad?

That’ll come, perhaps two or three blog posts along.

I should hope not--there wasn’t really much spoilery in this one (not really much in total, honestly).

Oops, I meant manager. Correction made; thank you!

I've just been introduced to the concept of a creel, and I don't get it.

Historically, creels were lined with moss and dipped in water, which kept them cool back in the days before ice was readily available. Since they were wicker, you could presumably also use them as live traps (which is how they’re used for lobster/crab fishing), keeping them submerged in the water and pulling them up each time you needed to add another fish (although I’m not sure if that was ever done).

As somebody who has filleted a bluegill before, yes you can eat 25 of them in one sitting. And still be hungry. And possibly not even have your breath smell like fish. In fact, I'm convinced you could starve to death doing nothing but catching bluegill and eating them.

I’m glad at least one other person understands this. I’m reasonably certain the only reason you get full eating fried bluegill is because of the batter and breading.

The beer might also play a part.

5081826
I wouldn’t know--my experience fishing has been that I won’t get to eat any fish at the end of the day, because they’re smarter than I am.

Which I suppose makes your statement that you could starve to death fishing for bluegill true for me.

5081903
I would assume that it is the breading and the beer that fills your belly. Maybe he should have given the pegasi his beer rather than his fish.

It was a modified reference to this, lol.

I thought the whole point of a bluegill was when they're small, they're not even worth filleting and you just fry them whole.

5083409
Or eat them whole, as ponies do.

MOW

Oh, like sprats?

Huh, that’s something I’ve never heard of until just now.
