Bluegill fillets

8 posts in this topic

Other than deep frying, pan frying or microwaving, are there any other ways to utilize bluegill fillets.? If so, please share how.

I have read over the years about soups, but I think they were using larger game fish.

Thanks

I like to cook them on my gas grill. Melt some butter with some Real Lemon, put a big piece of tin foil on the top rack, fold up the edges a bit so it holds the liquids, throw the fillets on, brush then with the butter mixture, cook until flaky, turning once. Season with your favorate seasoning after the turn. Tasty and easy cleanup. Cook lots because quite a few don't make it to the platter. I also like to leave the skin on one side of the fillet, I scale them and then fillet them, it holds them together.

I've done what blackjack said and I also do that same thing in the oven. They are tastey like that.

My kid loves this, she calls it cheesy fish. Just lay the fillets on a cookie sheet and then salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. I just like salt and then grill or salt and then bake. Really brings out the flavor of the fish.

Dump a few fillets at a time into a pot of boiling water - if you put a whole bunch at a time they stick together - cook for three minutes, maybe four. Spread out on paper towels and let cool - when cool, season & dip in cocktail sauce - eat like shrimp, cold. Very, very good. Lemon on top is very good as well - even dip in melted garlic butter...

I use a glass casserol dish uncovered.

Make layers of sliced Onions sliced potatoes and fish fillets

I salt and pepper each layer and drizzle with some melted butter when the dish is full (about 3 layers of each).

Mix about 1/2 cup of melted butter with about a half cup of Italian bread crumbs and spread over the top.

Bake at 350 for about an hour or until potatoes ar soft.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
