Hot here today (mid-80s) so, after my Saturday chores in town, I went back out on the lake around noon. Caught a limit of fish in about an hour and a half (!) The fish cops showed up too, but they weren't interested in little old me and my beat-up old Lund. Lots of boats on the water today and most were clustered at the reef near-to our home here. I watched them go from boat to boat, checking licences and fish. They seemed to be interested in the high-occupancy (& high-dollar) units & I can't say I'd blame them, as it was a target-rich environment. I caught my last fish while watching the show and started to pull my anchor (which I figured would trigger their attention) but they never even gave me a sniff. Fish for dinner tonight!

Canvasback, our Leech Lake is south of International Falls in Minnesota's Chippewa National Forest and slightly larger than Bacebridge's at a little over 100,000 acres.
Mosquitos are probably about the same size, though. Lots of good things come from Canada. My wife is from Winnipeg.

That’s a perfect size.
Do you have a recipe you use?
I’ve taken to air frying them dipped in a cornstarch slurry, and then panko crumbs.
A little remoulade sauce, and bliss to follow.

I like the “No hot grease” element of it.


Out there doing it best I can.

Fresh out of the water is hard to beat. I ate a bit-late last night, so just pan-fried them in EVOO with a little salt & pepper. Served with a baked 'tater, sour cream and butter, a chopped salid with a good French dressing, and a decent white wine. Oh yes, with a fresh-made tartar sauce as well.

I slept well after that.

I really like the slivered onions and green peppers version too. Is there a bad way, really?

Not really.

I’ve come to prefer walleye over perch on the daily.

But Halibut or ling cod still reigns supreme for me.

I’ve got a new boat I need to get wet, but it’s fish fly week. ☹️

A halibut over a walleye or perch? Not in a million years.

Halibut is a real treat, as is perch, but Wally is what we got here....mostly. That remoulade sauce sounds darn good too.

Laundry today and a bit of loafing. Maybe I'll go take a little tour of some of my favorite forest (i.e. grouse!) spots and see what's new there? The bugs are still darn fierce here, got me up at 5:30 this AM. Don't know how they're getting into the house, but they surely are. Hitchhikers?

Walleye, perch and, for that matter, Zander, are all about the same to me, once they are out of the pan. I’ve turned down a lot of halibut over the years, don’t see how anybody could be in love with that fish.

I’ve never turned down crappies and sunnies, might be the best of all.

Best,
Ted
