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.

    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
