Bass Fishing / Gyotaku / Popsicles

Brandon catches more than bass when he takes a trip through fishing basics with an Outsider expert. From bait to catch, there’s more to fishing than catching fish. Then, Elainena gets fruity in the Fuel Lab with a fresh, healthy, homemade Popsicle recipe. And she teaches Brandon a new way to keep his catch… Gyotaku, the ancient art of fish rubbing!!

Fuel Lab

Popsicles

Ingredients

– 1 container low-fat yogurt in your favorite flavor

– 2 cups Florida fruit juice (orange, tangerine, tropical fruit, etc)

– ½ cup fresh Florida fruit (strawberries, blueberries, tropical fruit)

– 4 to 6 Popsicle molds

Preparation

For Yogurt pops

– Mix fresh fruit and yogurt together in a small bowl.

– Add yogurt mixture to molds and freeze over night.

 

For juice pops

– Fill Popsicle molds ¾ full with juice.

– Add fresh fruit. Freeze overnight.

 

Make your own molds with small paper cups and popsicle sticks. After you have filled the cups ¾ of the way with the fruit and yogurt or juice, cover them tightly with plastic wrap. Poke the popsicle stick through the plastic wrap and freeze over night.

 

Get creative! Try adding different flavor juices or yogurts to make a layered effect. Add just enough for one layer, than freeze for several hours and add another different flavor layer. Re freeze and continue adding layers until the Popsicle is whole.

Reminders

– If you don’t have a real fish, you can use a fish mold.

– Don’t blob the paint!

– Make sure to cover the whole fish with paint.

Supplies

– Fish or fish mold

– Paint

– Surface to apply the paint to. We used paper and white t-shirts

Directions

Step 1: If using a real fish, carefully rinse under cold water and pat dry. Try to preserve the fin and scale details.

Step 2: Using straight pins, position and secure the fish to the foam board. Make sure to pin open the fins.

Step 3: Paint the fish in the direction of the scales, not against the grain of the fish. Be careful not to apply too little or too much paint – make sure there is enough paint to transfer to the final surface.

Step 4: Press the final surface down onto the still-wet painted fish and evenly apply pressure to help transfer the paint to the surface.

Step 5: Flip the final surface right-side up and let dry. Dispose of fish and foam when complete.
