  1. Personal Best Spot

    My wife, who does not fish, caught the largest spot ever in any of my boats. We were on Broken Bow lake in Oklahoma in the late 70's. I had an old 18 hp Evinrude on the back of a rented boat. We were fishing Texas rigged lizards on a point. I was, literally, casting my bait and hers. She had a pickup in about 20 feet of water and jerked when I told her to do so. She did a great job. The fish would have measured well over 20 inches and I would swear it was between 5 and 6 pounds. At that time, I did not know how close she was to a state record. We already had fish for eating, so we let it go. No pictures, of course. Different world, different time, different results
  2. What's Cooking?

    Leftover pork roast turned into a baked hash with potatoes, onion, carrot, and turnip. Avocado with balsamic tomato dressing.
  3. What's Cooking?

    When we visit the wife's mother (she is 95} in New Hampshire, I pick up a jug. It works great in a brine, in barbecue sauce, and in salad dressings.
  4. What's Cooking?

    That would work, but I have not yet splurged on the tool.
  5. What's Cooking?

    Oven set to convection roast at 240 degrees. I had a probe thermometer in it and set to 135 degrees. Pulled it, wrapped it in foil and a bag and put it in one of those thermal bags with the probe still in it. Internal temp peaked at 148 and had fallen to 125 an hour and a half later when I put it in a 500 degree oven long enough to brown it. In hindsight I would have preferred it if I had pulled it 5 degrees earlier. That would have left a tiny touch of pink.
  6. What's Cooking?

    Reverse sear two bone pork loin roast with baked potato and pan rosted carrots finished with Worcestershire sauce.
  7. What's Cooking?

    I have not used one, but many of the food blogs give it good reviews. Its weakest function is the saute/fry they say.
  8. What's Cooking?

    Made a run to the Shell Knob Harter House today. I have a two bone pork loin roast steeping in a brine of salt water and industrial strength maple syrup (Grade B). Looking forward to tomorrow.
  9. What's Cooking?

    Take prepared horseradish - about a 1/4 cup. Add two splashes of sriracha. Salt it heavily and sprinkle with pepper. Add about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of cream. Stir well and let sit. The horseradish will thicken the cream and you will wind up with a complex sauce. The idea of meat juice and/or liquid smoke would add to it.

    Would you and your partner like to stay at our place in Holiday Island? Double bed and a bathroom to yourselves less than 3 minutes from the Holiday Island ramp? Let me know.
  11. Clear water

    The Oklahoma limit is six fish above 14'". The TR limit is 4 fish at 18 inches or more. Can I tell you how many times I have caught Oklahoma fish and not taken TR fish? I think if you search my past posts, you might find examples. Use "Stockton limit" as your search string.
  12. Clear water

    The Oklahoma record walleye is 12 pounds and 13 ounces. The walleye in the picture below isn't even the Holiday Island Marina record. Mine was 13.75. Chuck's was 14.5 and I saw it. TR produces prodigious walleye and back channel communications tell me LOz does as well. I suspect Stockton holds something like this as well. Just saying.
  13. Clear water

    My, such hostility. I happen to post on the food thread. Are you implicating me in this generic slur? Or did your lambast just bleed over? What say we just take everything down a notch and stay friends?
  14. What's Cooking?

    The beautiful wife is making biscuits. I cooked the bacon. The salad is made and waiting to be dressed. Simple, delicious, change of pace dinner coming up!
