Looks like a good winter meal to dedicate some ice fishing success to!  You had me at the second line of the recipe - anything that calls for more than 1 cup of butter is OK in my book.

Looks very good. I do something similar with Walleye but never used the cream soup. But might have to try it. I used milk or half and half or cream and thickened it up at the end. I also like to add those small onions about the size of a dime. Usually find them in the frozen section. When they cook and get soft and absorb the liquid they explode in your mouth. That's if u like onions.

Years ago my mom used to make my dad fish head soup which started out with a big northern head. Eyes and all.

 

I'm not opposed to cooking with whole fish, including heads, but MAN - You'd think the last fish you'd want to use the external parts of would be a slimer.  Some of the best flaky white fillets on the planet, but no part of that skin is touching what I eat!

 

I remember my buddy did skin-on northern fillets in a foil pack once on the campfire.  even after washing it thoroughly, the slime contaminated the meat, almost threw up.

Now hold on there Thunder. l can't confirm this, because I've not yet tried it, but there was an article in the Minnesota Conservation Volunteer about people back in the day, that would laugh if you fillet the skin off a northern. They said that is where all the flavor is.

Like the way your Crappie stew looked and easy to make so I figured I would tweek it a bit and try to turn it into wild rice soup. Only changed a couple things. Used 50/50 cream of celery and cream of chicken and used chicken broth instead of water and wild rice instead of fish. Got it cooking in the crock pot and looks pretty good so far.

    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
