If you love fish even 1/4 as much as I do, this will be something of interest to you.
From the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources:
People in search of their own locally-sourced, organic fish need to look no further than the nearest lake or river.
For those foodies who are lost when it comes to catching their own meals, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources offers a special Hook and Cook program from 5 to 7:30 p.m. (Eastern) on Saturday, May 28 at Jacobson Park Lake in Lexington.
Staff will be on hand to help participants learn the basics of fishing, from setting up equipment to lures to use and how to filet the catch. Kentucky Fish and Wildlife will provide equipment for those without it.
There’s more than just fishing. Staff will provide a shore dinner of fish and sides at the lake. Chef Mac McBride, a Sullivan University culinary arts instructor and owner of Ruby Jean’s Café in Lexington, will teach a follow-up class at a later date for participants on preparing and cooking some outstanding fish dishes, and serve a buffet dinner featuring local fish, sides and beverages.
The event is open to adults with a valid Kentucky fishing license. Registration is $10. Spaces are limited, so pre-register today.
