    What's Cooking?

    Seriously bad joke gentlemen. So tonight I finally get to prepare the delayed Valentine's dinner. I have the chocolate expresso mousse made. I will serve it with semi whipped cream and fresh berries on the side. The appetizer, curried shrimp with mango basil sauce, is made and ready to assemble. The lobster tails are bagged with butter and ready to go in the sous vide. I have the asparagus chopped for the side dish, asparagus risotto, chopped and the Parmesan grated. The chilled bubbles are ready to come out. Let the festivities begin! (this space is the place card for the pictures to be added later)

    The wife was feeling poorly today. She asked me to delay the delayed Valentines. No butter poached lobster or any thing. Instead, I made her one of her comfort foods - tomato with sausage and herbs sauce over really good fusilli.

    Up river with the pre spawn/spawn fish shallow, try a small jig tipped with a minnow, a small jig with a junior sluggo, a roadrunner (tipped or not), and a jerk bait. As a back up, throw the flicker shad as a crank bait.

    I do not know about the quarry, but good spawn fishing sites include the eddy behind river turns and blockages such as islands and shoals.

    Opening Day '19

    Many of you know this, but do you know the local Walmart has trout day sales and the high school has a school holiday called trout day?

    Opening Day '19

    Stop at Tim's fly shop just outside the park and pay attention to what they say. And, like Ness said, eye protection, sturdy shoes, and maybe a kevlar vest would be warranted.

    Walleye have the urge by now. The water temp they prefer to spawn is 44 to 50. The move to the areas (whether they will prove effective) they prefer has started. By March 13th they will be mostly finished. Personally, I do not fish for them until after they settle down in April/May. However, if you are trophy hunting, the next month will be your best bet. Big girls will be full and shallow. Hope this helps. Good luck!

    I totally approve of this. Many times you need to make things happen with what you have or what you can buy. Sounds really good!
