Best walleye shore lunch

19 posts in this topic

Looking for the best shore lunch walleye batter you've ever had or made. Normally when we do it, we just use pancake flour and it turns out really well, but just looking to try something a little different to mix it up once in awhile. Thanks and looking forward to hearing what everyone does!

Rinse filets in beer then dredge in a mixture of two parts yellow cornmeal, two parts white flour and one part Cavender's Greek Seasoning. Fry up! grin

We do 2/3-3/4 Original Shorelunch with the corresponding Cajun, gives it a nice kick without burning your tongue off!

I usually put a cup of flour and a cup of cornmeal in bag, add a tsp of salt a tsp on pepper and a tbsp of Lawry's seasoning salt. I like using those gallon storage bags so I can put my freshly rinsed fillets a couple at a time into the bag and give them a good shake and into the pan they go.

Seasoned flour dredge

Egg/milk wash

Panko bread crumbs

Fried up in a little butter and olive oil mixture till golden brown on both sides. Add a little salt as soon as it comes out of the pan and you are DONE! This one is a lot easier at home, but can be done out and about fairly easily.

The other fantastic way to prep fish is a simple liquid wash (preferably egg or milk) and a dip in Andy's Red. I have been using Andy's Red since I found it at Fleet Farm. It is like mixing a box of Shorelunch Cornmeal batter with 1/3 of a box of Shorelunch Cajun. Perfect blend of seasoning, but not too much bite that you scare off the kiddies. Works great on fries too. Just did a batch of walters that way yesterday for dad. grin

I like a 50/50 mix of Panko crumbs and cornflake crumbs. You get the flavor from the cornflakes and the crispiness of the Panko. Straight Panko is a little too plain for me. Flour, dip in egg, dip in crumbs and into the oil.

Ebiz, That would be why I fry em up in butter and olive oil mix. It gives it a little more flavor and adding a little old bay seasoning works wonders. But I agree, straight Panko with out any other additions is a little bland.

If it is not done in the field, I do it like this (don't skip a step, and do it in this order):

Soak fillets in milk for 1/2 hour

Pat dry.

Roll in all purpose flour

Dip fillets in beaten egg with some hot sauce

Dust in Shore Lunch (10 million Elvis fans can't be wrong)

Roll in panko crumbs (there is no substitute)

Fry in Canola oil at 375 degrees. No more, no less.

Place on cooling rack.

Eat. Drink beer. Brag about your cooking skills. Go to sleep in the hammock.

Try a mixture of 4 cups flour to 1 cup sugar with some italian seasoning, fry in 50/50 olive oil and butter. The sugar will brown and you get a sweet flavor.

I throw some saltine crackers (maybe 1/2-3/4 of a bag that come 4 in a box) in a 1 gallon bag and crumble them with a roller, If the amount seems too little you can add a bit of bisquick (preffered) or flour. Then I add either lawry's and pepper, OR chili powder. If you want a mixed batch it can be applied later.

Mix 1 egg, milk, and beer in equal parts.

Dip and roll, and fry in oil.

I've never had any complaints, and I think it tastes way better than "just" flour or cornmeal or potato buds or pancake mix, but thats just my opinion.

TNFL, we do the same thing. Cracker crumbs...mixed with flour and season with salt/pepper and heavy on the lemon pepper. Dang good!!!!!!!

I have tried some recent experiments with good results. I soaked my bluegill fillets in Texas Pete's Hot Sauce for a couple days...then coated them with ritz crackers and flour. I was amazed at the nice flavor from the hot sauce. I'll definitely do that one again!

If you like them deep fried the two-part Babe Winkelman mix is tough to beat. The right level of crunchiness and the seasoning is very good. I have been a Shore lunch guy but if I do the deep fry method I prefer the Winkelman mixture. Two packets: a wash and breading. Very tasty.

    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation. 
    • Some times it's just nice getting out of town and when your with the right people a wet weekend can still be fun. This weekend should be better!
    • Cool story! 
    • Reb's old girlfriend might have had a diaphragm, but you would find that one in the lower unit - not in the carburetor...
    • Most of the homeowner's expense comes from heating and cooling inside a home. Double pane windows have gasses like argon or krypton filled to displace the air between the panels. But the problem is when this leaks from the window panes and settles down at the bottom. 1) The main problem that would arise is condensation. The moisture level goes high thus causing mold, mildew and rotting wood sills. 2) If the gas leaks, the window will not provide better insulation. 3) The windows start to make squeaky sounds thus it is hard to close and open. 4) It also affects the stripping to loose. I live here in Canada. In our house, we have double pane windows in almost all the rooms. Now I could see that some of the windows to be in a foggy condition. Will it be due to the gas in the window panes? Should I need to replace the windows? I have heard that casement windows.are good compared to double pane windows. I would like to know the benefits of casement windows. Will it cut down my utility bills? Please do share your thoughts and valuable suggestions. Thanks for the time.
    • We spent last weekend in the camper, holed up hiding from the rain. Not the worst thing ever, but a hike would've been nice. Hopefully we'll have better weather over Memorial Day. It looks good now so I'm excited. 
    • I am in a confusion on which one to choose. I have anyways decided to separate the bath area from the toilet. Which one would be better? I don't have enough area in the bathroom. One of my friends said that when it comes to energy efficiency and water conservation, a quick shower virtually always beats a bath. Is it true??   Although it is good for relaxing and ideal for bathing small children, I think it will be difficult for older people and people with injuries to get in and out. When it comes to the case of water heaters also I think it will be difficult to fill the tub. I think all these issues can be sorted out using a shower. Showers always need only less water. But if there is any leak, it will be difficult to fix.   I personally prefer bathtubs. Although it has many disadvantages compared to showers, the relaxation and freshness we get after bathing in a tube are very different. What is your opinion? Based on your opinion, I want to fix my decision and approach a plumbing company for installing it. Feel free to share your thoughts.
