Well, I'm going to figure out what my favorite hot meal is in the fish house this year. Up until this year, it is almost a tie between fresh vension beer sticks and egg salad sandwiches. The egg salad can create a few problems with a couple guys in one house though. grin.gif

When I was a kid I loved to eat onion and ketchup sandwiches on hard water. Maybe because they warmed me and the cold air was available to prevent overheating. I haven't been fishing that much as an adult but look forward to eating fresh perch, fried to perfection along with some french fries, cooked next to hole. Mmmmmmm, why do these threads keep coming up and making me hungry?
Maybe hanson has a good suggestion: list favorite cold and hot foods.

Favorite cold food would have to be the biggest, fattest deli meat sandwich you can build along with some chips. For the hot meal, I'd have to go with venison or some fajitas.

this may not apply to everyone. I have a small oven range from an old winnebago that in the house. It is the best thing EVER!!

We can cook pizzas, bake chicken, pretty much anything you can think of, yes cake and brownies too!! grin.gif

my answer is CABBAGE ROLLS!
with some flat bread and garlic paste with a pickled banana pepper YUM

Boiled venison country sausage always goes good. Beef sticks for snacking on and hungry man dinners in the oven for the main meal. The wife usually keeps a teapot full of hot water so we can have hot chocalote or cup of noodles.

I like Deer jerky and any beverage that has sat on the ice for an hour and hasn't quite frozen. A cigar usually fits in there too.
A buddy went to school in Emmetsburg, IA and delivered pizzas for Pizza Hut. once winter came areound he would get quite a few calls for pizza delivery on the ice. They would tell him which part of the lake and the color or brand of the ice house and he'd drive the little GEO Metro right out to the house. If he got stuck the guys on the ice were good about giving him a push. The lake is real small in comparison to some of the big ponds up there though.

Brats and Mt. Dew. Also, at the lake I fish you can call the bait shop and have them put in a pizza for you and then you just go pick it up.

We like to filet whatever we catch in the shack. Fry up in butter with salt and pepper.MM MM good. One other thing though, I noticed that whatever we cook out there, taste so much better than if we cooked it at home.Any body else notice that?

If you eat fish on the ice, is it considered a shore lunch??


And I guess I will say it before Muleskinner gets in here. Bullheads are not an Iowa favorite on the ice GDI.

Made from scratch on the ice "beef Stew" thick and chunky and well seasoned. Garlic toast on the side a couple beers and a whole lot of "ventilation" :o

When I was a kid my Dad would take me out spearing and we'd bring cheese and bologna sandwiches wrapped in tin foil. Dad would throw them on top of heater to toast the bread and melt the cheese...Mmmmmm mmmm!! Just goes to show that everything tastes better when on the ice. However, NOTHING beats venison brats boiled in beer. The boiling beer makes the fish house smell real good, too. Homemade venison chili comes in a very close second. smile.gif

Man everything sounds great...

I have several points;
1. Onions & Ketchup---gotta try that one
2. Can you eat your fish on the ice...I have heard different opinions.
3. What is Pork Chop in a Can?
4. We were on LOW and I convinced my Wsconsin buddies to try poached pout in butter...oh yes...they were converts.
The popcorn in bacon grease...interesting.

Anyone of you guys can share my house this winter.

Pork Chop in a can would be a liquid meal usually consisting of hops and barley, and generally sold in lots of 6,12,18,or 24.

Depending on ones age and relative experience one can survive off of this alone for weeks (college students), days (shortly after college), or hours (at this point in my life).

Practice makes perfect.

I don't know about everybody else, but anything that you cook on the ice tastes good. If we're moving around a lot and traveling light, we take a metal coffee can full of charcoal(matchlight) punch some holes in the bottom of the can and some tin foil. With this you can cook just about anything. Just wrap it up in the foil throw it on the top of the coffee can. We've cooked just about anything you can make with venison(brats, ring bologna, and even heated up snack sticks, heating them really brings out the flavor).We've even cooked pork chops. You even have a place to warm your hands.
