SOLID TROUT AND BIG TIME REDFISH LAST WEEK ON BIG LAKE

Weather last week was really a mixed bag. With winds from almost every direction during the week and water temp's around 65 degrees catching was good for most anglers. Solid catches of trout and redfish came on Mirrour’s lilljohns and Mirrodine. Other soft plastic lures like Hackberry Hustlers and Berkleys copper penny gulp were hard to beat. Most redfish were caught bouncing the big lures on the bottom near the jetties. As water temps rise so will the number of fish brought back to the cleaning table. Call 888.762.3391 and check availability here at the lodge and get hooked up for a day on the lake catching dinner. Here are some pictures from the last 6 or 7 days and you can see them all by clicking here.

THIS WEEKS YUMMY RECIPE

Cajun Red Neck Hush Puppies

  • 2-1/2 cups corn meal, coarse ground yellow preferred
  • 1 tbs salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp onion salt or 1/2 tsp dried minced onion or 2 to 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tbs left-over stewed (cooked) squash or cream style corn
  • 2 eggs
  • Hard boiling water

Mix dry ingredients together. Break eggs on top of mix and stir well. Add hard boiling water a little at a time while stirring until it forms stiff mush (should be stiff enough to stick to spoon). Drop round ice tsp of batter into hot grease after cooking fish. Use second spoon to push batter off.

Keep cup of water handy to keep spoon damp so batter doesn't stick. The secret is the water must be hot enough to cook the corn meal. The grease just crusts the outside of ball to golden brown.

You can always go back and add more water (be sure it is boiling if you do) but you don't want it too liquid. It won't hold together when it hits the grease.

Here is the secret - -  Get yourself a bottle of WOW WEE spicy dipping sauce, It is the best I have ever seen for dipping specialty items like hush puppies and etc. Let me know how you like it.


My thought – I have decided that I’m not drinking alone if the dogs are here. Another glass of Merlot please.

Have a great week and remember “Ya shoulda been here yesterday”
