Winkleman Fish Mix

12 posts in this topic

Anyone use this stuff? I'm guessing he has different variations...is there one that is better than another?

Thinking about trying some new fish batter. Any advice?

I love the stuff. We ran out of our usual mix in Canada. Luckily I grabbed a few Babes and everyone loved it. Now that's all we use. My favorite is the cajun. AWESOME.

I bought some of Babe's for 99 cents a couple of weeks ago at Cub. I haven't tried it yet but figured I couldn't go wrong for that price. I'll let you know if I try it soon.

We tried Babes and thought it was OK. But I really like the "original" Shore Lunch seasoning much better.

that's what I do....1/2 Original Shore Lunch and 1/2 Cornmeal

Shore Lunch.I also like Original Shore lunch with Andy's from Fleetfarm.It also has cornmeal and is a little spicier.

I am not too sure I want to mix gary roach into original shore lunch. I heard he is tough to chew and kinda gets mad when you try to cook him up...;)

The best stuff I have used in my life, to include shore lunches when I guided is called, "Totally Wild Seasonings". I picked some up at the Fishing Show at the convention center a couple of years ago. It tastes great and does not burn after a couple of batches fried. Sportsman Warehouse stocks it or I just order it from them. It's a Mom and Pop business from our neighbors to the South.

Im a huge fan of the Cajun Injector. Its breads thicker than Shore lunch and gets crispier. I think they run $1 something a bag.

If you can find it, I highly recommend using 10,000 Lakes Fish Coating mix. It's made by Sturdiwheat Foods out of Red Wing, MN. I have used them all, Shorelunch, Roach Mix, Ledgendary Northwoods, Andy's, etc. and this product has ALL of them beat hands down. I purchase three flavorings in particular--Original mix, Cajun mix and the Lemon mix. Not many retailers handle the product--I find it at Lunds and Byerlys stores. You might be able to order it on-line.

I mix one of the varieties with Panko (for crunch and cripsyness) and fry in peanut oil. Finished product is crispy, light and very flavorful.

I would say that the cajun is the best batter I have ever used.

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
