MONDAY MORNING UPDATE
FROM THE SPECKLED TROUT CAPITAL OF THE WORLD
HACKBERRY ROD AND GUN

TYPICAL AUGUST FISHING PATTERN REMAINS GOOD

Most days on the lake, when it wasn’t raining this week were very productive. Good limits of trout and redfish came from working over reefs on both sides of the lake in West cove and the east side. Soaking live and cut bait under a cork in the mornings was very good. A couple of our guides have reported good catches around the old LNG plant off the intercostal canal with cut lady fish. Call toll free at 888.762.3391 and check out availability. We still have a few boats available the last week of August so check it out and come enjoy the fishing at the speckled trout capital of the world. Here are a few pictures from last week and you can see them all by clicking here

THIS WEEKS YUMMY RECIPE

Shrimp season opened last Monday and we are lucky enough to get some of the large tender crustaceans right off the boat.  “Talk about fresh”  About the only way to mess up shrimp is to over cook them and if you do that it’s a mortal sin in my house. Here is one of my MANY favorite ways to have shrimp. Your favorite bottle of wine goes well with these but so does all my favorite recipes.

Shrimp on Skewers

  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup good olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 pounds jumbo shrimp (16 to 20 per pound), peeled (tails left on) and deveined

Combine the parsley, basil, mustards, salt, pepper, olive oil, and lemon juice. Add the shrimp and allow them to marinate for 1 hour at room temperature or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

Prepare a charcoal grill with hot coals, and brush the grilling rack with oil to prevent the shrimp from sticking. Skewer the shrimp on 6-inch skewers and grill for 1 1/2 minutes on each side.

Shrimp Skewers


My Thought – Actually is was Marsha’s thought -  Rushing - - - - -is  a state of confusion due to a lack of planning,

When one does not plan to succeed..

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