Northern

38 posts in this topic

Popped down to the river this morning to check and eye spot. 26 inch northern was there.  Now it is on it's way to the grill. :)  Kinda wrecked my fish pan last week so gonna use a cookie sheet. Gotta get a new pan. Cherry wood in some foil for a little extra flavor and will see how it is.

Did you use a thermometer? I never do. When the fillets start separating it done! I do walleye like that also. Only I leave the skin on them!

good idea to leave the skin on. I will do that sometime. I usually use a pan with tons of holes in it but kinda wrecked it last week... lol   I spay with pam a.d then coat with olive oil. and a buncha other stuff so the probe works dandy. dont need it on thin pieces.

May I suggest when you get a new pan...get an Airbake brand non-stick...they're great. Nice even cooking. No lightweight piece of tin. Kinda spendy, but worth it. Had mine for years. :)

Well, looks we we've got that whipped! Ever wonder why baking sheets are square and plates are round? :grin:

coat with olive oil. then lemon pepper and some cajun powder. lay some sliced onion and lemon on top then a little fresh ground pepper. I also put some cherry wood chips in aluminium and set it in there.  2 burners so I heat it up with one then add the fish, then turn the burner on with the wood chips on it. about 350 works nice.

So the edges don't hang over the sides of a round table.:P

Nice fish looks good and probably tasted better.

And of course, if you want square plates, even disposable, you can have them.

 I'd actually prefer quasi-symmetrical oblong ones......pass the fish, please.

Looks delicious Eyeguy!

I read an article in the Minnesota conservation volunteer about the old timers in Mn. always left the skin on their northerns because it gave a lot of flavor to the fish? I don't know, maybe? Or was it because they didn't have sharp enough fillet knives?

    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.
