      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Bluegill fillets

Recommended Posts

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.

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've done what Heartman does except instead of water.......cook them in 7-up.The citrus flavor is really good.

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.

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
