Re: Re: Re: Re: Anyone has the lyrics for Choupique?
There may be more than one, but there is an old community and bayou between Chataignier and Eunice called Choupique that is where my great grandfather Denus Mcgee was raised. He recorded a song called "One-step de Choupique". Of course it is also the Cajun word for the bowfin fish that I love so much.
I live just off Choupique road, not far from Choupique
bayou where yes, Griff, you could catch a Choupique.
Not that anyone would want to. toothy critters, not good to eat, the meat is very mushy. They do fight like hell though. Turn a perfectly good spinnerbait into a twisted ball of wire.
Oh man, not good to eat. Maybe its the cabri in me, but its one of my favorites. It is only good if cooked fresh though, and I only like it in a sauce, not fried. On the banks of the bayou cooked over a fire, I get revenge for the twisted ball of spinnerbait.
