Weekend with Jim W.

Recommended Posts

I got the chance to do some fishing with Jim W. last weekend.

It was a great day to fish but the trout weren't biting as good as Jim said they would.

We did see at lease one trout over 20 inches but never got that fish to bite.

Biggest trout of the day was a 19 1/2 incher that Jim caught.



Jim's 19 1/2 incher

This was a cave that feed the stream we were fishing.

Now when do I ever guarantee catching?LOL

It was a good time and we did catch quite a few fish. I was hoping for some larger ones and the one that flashed at your lure was a very large stream trout! It was a small area with little room for the trout to chase it down.

Hoping for a few more bigger ones today!!

Thanks for posting Steve!!

Well, Rick and I went out last evening for a go round with what I thought would be a big fish night.
UNfortunately only small fish came in!

Trout and smallies ( small) were willing to bite.

I was personally surprised to see the lack of larger brown trout.

However, a lot of change in progress in the stream we fished. Holes have been modified by flooding and I believe, trout are in stages of feeding and moving.

I did catch a 10 inch smallmouth that puked up a 5-6 inch shiner, after taking my 5-6 inch rapala.

This shows me some heavy feeding has been taking place by the larger fish. Maybe they were all napping!?lol

The streams are dropping considerably and where I had found fish earlier, none were to be found yesterday. IN fact, spots that "always" produced were a disappointment for me!

Thanks again for coming along Rick...next time!

    • The vinegar in Italian dressing tenderizes the meat and according to google other acids like citrus juice will too:   Can you use vinegar to tenderize meat?   When applied to beef, acids soften tough muscle at the same time that they give meat more flavor. What's more, flavorful acids run the gamut from simple vinegar to citrus or tomato juices. Choose balsamic, apple cider or plain white vinegar, or tenderize with lemon, lime or even orange juice.
    • But do all marinades tenderize?  I always thought they were just for flavor.
    • there are many marinates out there, so go with the flavors you like!!!!  
    • I use Wishbone Robusto Italian dressing. Most of the meat I marinade is feral pork from OK. Even the chops are tough. I cut them a little thinner than I would domestic pork and marinade them for 18 to 24 hours before grilling.
    • Too late, but an interesting idea.  What does everyone use for a tenderizing mariande?
    • I usually pour marinade into the packages of deer steaks right before I vacuum seal them to allow some of the marinade to be sucked into the meat. I leave them in the fridge 1 day to marinate before freezing. Not sure if this will help in your case but it couldn't hurt.
    • I have that tenderizer and it works good..  use that and then marinate if you wish...
    • I'll have to pass this on to 2 friends that are big fans of sous vide. Several other people and myself think the meat prepared this way seems like an incomplete dish. Like it should be part of a stew or soup but doesn't appeal to us as a stand alone meat. Searing before serving sounds like a good fix.
    • All good questions, they were new in the quiver. Arrows was in weeds tip in dirt but not barried and pretty confident didn't close. These have no o-rings or rubber bands. Was just mostly curious if others had issues with these or anybody had different ones to recomend. 
    • Sous vide.   It allows cooking a long time to break down collagen without overcooking and drying out the very lean meat.    Circulators are quite affordable these days, and you probably already have a vacuum sealer.   You can experiment with the time.   I would start at about 4-5 hours for steak.    It sure works for cheap sirloin beef.      After cooking, cool it down in a ice bath for a little while, pat it dry, and sear it for a very short time on a screaming hot cast iron pan or on a roaring grill.   Like 30 seconds to maybe a minute.   Get a crust without cooking the inside.
