Crispy on the outside, tender, flaky fish on the inside, this simple pan-fried bluegill recipe is reminiscent of old-fashioned flavor and perfect for stove or campfire for your fresh catch. We love to take the girls fishing. It’s so fun to sit back, toss in a line, and watch their faces light up when their bobber starts dunking into the water. So, we took them the other day to a local spot full of delicious bluegill. We all 5 caught a mess of them. We brought them home, and then cleaned and fried them for dinner. So yummy.
