Northern

20 posts in this topic

Tried it different.  A little olive oil, lemon pepper and cajon powder. And of corse a bit more pepper before eating. A little pinot grigio and some orange peppers. This was really good !

You know when my son and i fished at leech, we caught several northerns along with eyes.  I liked the northern better than walleye, I think it is just a tighter meat than the others.  I even bought some here in phoenix and fried them up.  But for the cost of them here, i could have flown back to leech and caught them myself.  Great dinner.  Jeff

My wife also said that she likes the taste of Pike over Walleye. So, now I have to keep and clean a few slimers once in a while! :(

I started out eating northern as a lad so when walleye hit the plate, it was a nice change but still liked the northern better. Interesting to see some of the toys we've all got for grilling. I like the perforated frying pan idea! :D

You could probably remove the wood in the handle and eliminate the eventual leechlake grill fire thingy! :D

Looks great to me!!! Walleye or northerns, I'll take either one. Both are great, IMO. I like norheren like that, and waldos in beer batter.

Try fish in parchment paper (can use tinfoil in a pinch, plus it protects you against government mind control rays)

Like this one (pike instead of cod)

Foil-Roasted Cod with Herbed Vegetables

Published December 1, 2006.

Why this recipe works:

We love baked fish recipes, especially as the highlight of a quick and easy weeknight meal. For a recipe that made swift work of cleanup, we roasted each fish fillet in its own foil pouch along with vegetables and flavorful ingredients like thyme and basil. Once our recipe’s fish and vegetables were cooked through, we transferred all of the foil’s contents to a plate and discarded the foil.

less

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut into thin half moons
  • 1 fennel bulb, trimmed, halved, cored, and sliced thin
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 scallions, sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine or dry white vermouth
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 boneless, skinless cod fillets ( about 2 pounds )
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

Instructions

  1.  

    1. Adjust oven rack to lowest position and heat oven to 450 degrees. Combine zucchini, fennel, garlic, scallions, basil, thyme, wine, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in large bowl.

    2. Lay four 14-inch-long pieces of foil on work surface. Place one fillet on lower half of each piece of foil and season with salt and pepper. Top each fillet with one-quarter of vegetable mixture and 1 tablespoon butter. Fold foil over fish and vegetables and crimp edges together to form 4 packets.

    3. Arrange packets in single layer on rimmed baking sheet and cook until vegetables are tender and fish is just cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer packets to individual plates and carefully cut open with scissors, being careful to avoid steam. Serve.

That northern looks delicious! I know the big thing is getting out the y-bones but honestly I don't find it to be much of a hardship to remove them while I'm eating. I like them pan fried as good as anything.

So there's a market for pike down south and they're spendy?  Sounds like a pretty lucrative business venture for a guy that can't keep the hammer-handles off his line :)

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .

    • Look great but the page is horrible, anybody figure out the price? The one in the video looks like a buzz bait, do they come in different tails or all the tails come with?  Anybody speak Japanese?
