- 1 large grindle (also known as bowfin or cypress trout)
- 1 inner tube
grindle, usually any smelly, rancid bait will do, but can be caught on a variety of underwater lures. When they are hungry, anything will do.
Did pit about 2 feet deep, by 1 foot wide by 3 feet long.
Make fire in pit using whatever kindling is available, and let fire burn to coals.
Wrap grindle in inner tube, place in pit, cover with coals, and bake for several hours.
Remove grindle from innertube, throw grindle away and eat inner tube.
Note: Some species of garfish can be used, and in particular, alligator gar.
