wmn luv me walleye fearme

soup recipe

Recommended Posts

Here's my Chowder recipe I made up for Red Lake crappies. People always ask me if you can use other kinds of fish, I doubt it would taste any different no matter what you use. I have used perch and walleyes many times and even sunnies once...

Crappie chowder

5 slices bacon

1/2 cup onion

1/2 cup chopped carrot, diced very small

1/4 cup chopped celery,

5-6 crappie fillets (cut into 1" pieces)

4-5 red potatos peeled, cut into 1/2" cubes

1 quart water

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1 16oz. evap. milk

1 16oz. cream style corn

1 can chopped clams

in dutch oven or large pot

put potatoes in pot w/ just enough water to cover...boil till tender. drain

Cook bacon in pot till crispy. Set aside. Leave small amount (2tblsp) drippings in pot.

Add onion, carrot, and celery to drippings and cook on Med. heat till tender, stirring constantly. Add crappie, clams, potatoes, water, salt and pepper. Bring to boil over med-high heat. Reduce heat to low, simmer covered for 8-10 minutes till fish is firm and opaque and begins to flake.

Blend in milk and corn. Cook over med. heat (do not boil or scorch) about 7-10 minutes until mixture is hot, stirring occasionally. Keep warm on low - med/low till serving. Crumble bacon on top of each serving. Enjoy w/ fresh croissants or bread sticks.

Good Luck!

Hey LABS, next time you make a batch of that let me know and I will stop by to try it out. Sounds awesome. I might have to give it a shot sometime.

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
