This year we have targeted whitefish instead of perch and the outings have been great.Last weekend meangene and I went 5 for 11 and this Sunday 4 of us went 6 for 10.Can't believe how many fish can be lost with 1/2 their body out of the hole-incredible.The 2 lures in the pic worked for me on the bottom like a goby while the vibrato worked for my buddy Rob.I could not buy a fish on the vibrato.Both days the fishing just died after 12 pm like clockwork.we would mark them steady but they went lockjaw.Made steaks out of 1 whitefish as in the pic .A little more work than filleting but you do get more meat .

Would you fry the stakes up or on a plank in the bbq? Nice work by the way.

Wow great job on the fishing and the steaks Alan..

I used to cut up trout this way and cook them in the oven and BBQ.

Glad to hear you guys are out there having a great time and thanks for the report..

Cheers!

What about the mud layer? Do you just avoid eating that part?

Nicely done Mr. Toothhealer. I was wondering about the mudline as well. Does it scrape off easy after cooked?

To tell you the truth, I just scaled,gutted and cut the pieces.Did not remove the mud line but did not have a bad taste when I ate it .A little salt , white flour and a little oil.Regards

I cooked my very first caught whitie last night. Baked filets in butter, onion, garlic, salt pepper and tomato pieces. Wife is kicking me out. Told me to go catch more. I think she liked it. I know I did.
