Creole Tilapia

 Tilapia

When I was a little kid, my dad and I would go fishing. Dad would fill the cooler with soda and water. Mom would make us sandwiches and chips. I'd help dad load the truck up with fishing poles and fishing tackle boxes. Dad would crab the coolers. And off we go with the boat in tow behind us. I was so excited about fishing with dad.

We did a lot of fishing at Lake Champlain. Beautiful lake. Lake Champlain is a natural, freshwater lake in North America. Locate within Vermont and New York, but partially situated across the US and Canada border.

You may have heard about the mystery around Lake Champlain, the Champ. Reminiscent of the Loch Ness Monster, Ogopogo. Champ is a giant aquatic animal that makes the lake it's home. Sightings have been sporadis over time. Locals have developed something of a fondness for the creature. At one of the parks on the lake, there's a huge sign of Champ with names of folks who have seen Champ. I have never seen Champ.

Today, I still enjoy eating fish. I don't get to go fishing as much as I would like to.

I like going to the fish market, and I always have my camera with me.
