Step:

  1. Bluegills, a small panfish found in freshwater lakes and streams and some rivers, are a popular game fish among anglers due to their feisty nature and excellent taste. During the spawning season, usually in late May through August, bluegill females produce eggs. The best chance for catching a bluegill with eggs is during the peak of the spawning season when water temperatures are between 67 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. bluegill eggs are considered a delicacy in some areas. popular with poor folk. it is also known as poor mans caviar..

  3. directions: carefully remove eggs sacks from the bluegills belly.. be sure to not break the sacks that enclose the eggs.

  4. heat oil in a skillet.

  5. rinse eggs sacks in cold water very gently by filling a dish with water and with fingertips swish the egg sacks around to rinse them.
