Crushed up saltine crackers work well after dipping the fillets in milk with egg.

I use saltine craskers also. Make sure they are ground very fine, like powder. I add lemon pepper and dill weed to it. Dip fillet in egg, then toss in cracker mix, then fry in pan with LOTS of butter, not oil. Is it lunck time yet?

We use a mix of cornflake crumbs and corn meal, 2/3 cornflake crumbs to 1/3 corn meal. You can also go 3/4 to 1/4 depending on how you like the breading. We also fry everything in lard. Potatos and fish have and entirly better taste in lard.

I like to use Panko crumbs (after dipping in a light egg and water wash) but not allot of people are like me and have Panko crumbs in the cupboard at all times. I think a real good seconds choice is saltine crumbs as stated above. The trick it grind them up fine enough of it just gets clumpy and you do not get a good even costing. This is all the boys use when we go to Lac Suel.

I'm somewhere between fishorgolf and eyesonly. I like to use a 50/50 mix of Panko and Club crackers dipped in an egg/bear bath. Ritz work well in a pinch as well.

1/3 corn meal, 1/3 saltines, 1/3 spicy taco Doritos. Chop to very small pieces/powder. Dip the filet in flour, then an eagg wash then the chopped up crunchy stuff. Pan fry.

Winkelman mix is outstanding if you like cripy deep fried fish.

I use korn flakes and oatmeal with flour. Mix them all together. Do an egg wash then roll in the mix and pan fry. Enjoy. smile

Make sure you crush the korn flakes first though.

With the health kick going. OK, MY weight going up, ive been doing a lot more baking of my fish. Spray fillet with " i cant believe its not butter" and then sprinkle on garlic salt and cayanne pepper and bake for 15 min. If you like fish with a little kick, you will love this simple recipe.

After years of experimenting, this is the only way I do it now.

1. Dredge in seasoned flour (Season salt, garlic powder & pepper). Shake off excess.

2. Dip in Egg Wash

3. Dredge in (my order of preference depending on what I have on hand)

A: Panko (very nice crunch)

B: Seasoned Bread Crumbs

C: Unseasoned Bread Crumbs

D: Crushed Saltines

Fry in enough Canola or Veg Oil to cover half of fillet. When the fish is lightly browned on each side, its done. With hot oil it shouldn't take more than a couple minutes per side, depending on the size of the fillet. Nothing worse than overcooked fish, especially if they are freshly caught fillets.

    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
    • I like that you caught someone else taking photos of the feast too!
