I use peanut oil(but any is ok)

meatfish fish and chicken strip breading

batter is;

1 box jiffy corn muffin mix

equal panko

equal breaton sesame crackers ground into powder or whole wheat cracker

1/3 to 1/2 jar mrs dash garlic and herb

I start with 1/2 the fallowing and let people taste test,and make a portion with out either and add cayenne and chili(I watch my sodium) some folks love it salty.

1 tsp lemon pepper(cheaper brands are high sodium)

1 tsp fav season salt

add cayenne and chili powder if you like it hot

pat fillet dry and dip in 50/50 egg/milk wash,roll in breading and deep fry.

tarter sauce:

any store bought tarter

add 1 jar of finely chopped artichoke heart

about 4 fine chopped sweat gerkins

1/2 of a lemon juice

add a T or 2 of mayo or miracle whip

I have not tried baking this yet but my guess is that it would work fine and be much healthier.(

I too bought fryer this year and used it to fry up some fish for my daughters baptism. It worked slick because you can cook a ton of fish at one time. No one was waiting with the plate held out. What I used was a 50/50 mix of Pork extra crispy Oven Fry and Regular Shorelunch. I used canola oil instead of Peanut. (I'm cheap :)) I fed 15 people it took 2 boxes of each, one bottle of oil, and a playmate lunch cooler FULL of sunnies, crappie, and walleye.

I go easy... I soak the fillets in evaporated milk(many use egg, I use the milk as I think it makes a crispier batter.) Then I just use Cracker Meal and a little flour and Lowrys mixed in.. take the fillet out of the milk dip in the cracker meal, fry.. that simple, and ohhhhh so good.

As Deitz Dittrich does, I do as well when I don't have all the other stuff handy and its pretty tough to beat(something to be said for simplicity).I've never tried the evaporated milk but I will next time. I'll do a side by side and may never use egg again.

Thanks for the suggestion.

When life deals you lemons use them on fish with fresh dill and rosemary.

seasoned flour, whatever season's you like( i like lowry's also ), eggwash, than into a batter like panko crumbs or heck even some more seasoned flour. After applying the final dip into the flour give it some time for the flour to soak in so that it doesn't all float off and turn your oil into a mess.

I love Mckormicks fish and chips batter with beer instead of water. I also do a instant potato coating......dust filets in flour, then in egg, then into instant potato flakes you have to press the fillets into the flakes.....watch your oil temp. The flakes burn easily, but makes a nice delicate crust.

    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
    • Try going over to this thread. Rock & Edibles-Agates-Fossils-Artifacts-Mushrooms-Ginseng-Gems-etc. There is some discussion taking place under Morels' 2018 already.
    • Guys and Gals, I have searched high and low and have found none at all this spring.  Anyone have an success.  I am guessing it is too dry.  Will they still pop?  Any advise? "Set the Hook", Flash  
    • Wow, my spots are way behind this year. Had hoped to find a bunch before this coming long weekend for a big family Walleye and Morel fry but have only found 5 small grays so far. Just not seeing the ground cover growing very much yet and have saw no other types of mushrooms which seem to grow first pop up yet. This is a very late year so far.
