We have a few up in Merchant's Millpond, but Lord knows, you best not get caught tryin' to take one outta there!

it is not fishy at all granted it has to be done right. if you don't get it in Louisiana it probably wont be good.

As for being a protected species that was years ago they almost went extinct it is no longer protected here. Actually we have over population problems, its funny they lifted some of the restrictions but you have to have a special license now to hunt them. its kinda funny too cause people down here have big problems with them showing up in peoples back yards yet still don't allow us to freely hunt them.

I didn't mean to offend you about it tasting like 'fishy chicken" but I ate it in NOLA at a popular restaurant there, and my husband said the same. I'm game for most unusual foods and I must say it was the only thing we ate there that we didn't like. Bring it all on, except alligator!

no not offended however New Orleans is bad example it has gone down in recent years. I went a couple years ago and was very disappointed wasn't the N.O.L.A that I remember.
I turned my girlfriend on to Gumbo shes from New York and she loves it.
We ordered some in New Orleans and wow it tasted like the dumped a whole canister of salt in it and charged us $15 a bowl for it.

The other main difference is New Orleans is mostly Creole food and I live 2 hours West of New Orleans and here its Cajun.

Now if you want a recipe for Gumbo I can give you one I made myself I have yet to find anyone that can even come close.
