Indiana Ice Fishing and Fresh Bluegill Dinner

Ice fishing in Indiana.  It sometimes looks like the picture above.  Even though I do not know anyone in that picture, we know weather in Indiana changes everyday.  Sometimes you are the only guy left out there ice fishing. If it's warm enough to go without your shirt, you probably shouldn't be on the ice!

As a mom, ice fishing makes me nervous.  So does any other activity! If you are a mom, you understand! 

Back on the ice....

Look, hun. Everything is going fine!

Line is in, everyone is happy.

The boy has found his favorite spot.

Nothing is better than fresh bluegill dinner.  Macie even went out one evening to go catch a few with dad.

 Ryan even caught a couple Northern Pike at the Willow Slough Lake.  Some fishermen call this Poor Man's Lobster.  Tastes good, it is a challenge removing all of the rib bones.

Fresh fish is my farmer's favorite meal, in the summertime or during the winter. Fishing is one of his favorite hobbies.  Taking the kids is an extra treat!!

Fresh Bluegill Dinner 

1 box Shore Lunch Dinner Original Mix
2 cups milk
3 cups Crisco Vegetable Oil

We recommend soaking your fish in water after you have skinned the fish.  The night before you are ready to fry the fish, drain the water, and cover the fish with milk.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees to keep you fish warm while frying all your fish.

Fill oil in your Fry Daddy Deep Fryer to the fill line. Plug in and preheat.  Prepare your fish.  Remove fish from milk, set on paper towels.  You can use the baggie supplied in the Shore lunch mix, or use a gallon size zip loc bag and put in one pouch of mix.   Add a couple pieces of fish at at time and shake.  Add to separate plate to get ready to fry.  When  your oil is hot, start adding a couple pieces of fish to the fryer.  Keep a good eye on it, and when it's golden brown, remove and let rest on a pyrex pan with paper towels.  You can add the pan to the oven if you desire to keep the fish warm if you have a big batch.

Ice fishing is fun, but I have to admit that the guys in the picture did really have a good time on the ice. Do you have reliable ice fishing tips you can share? I found some here: http://wildernessmastery.com/fishing/ice-fishing-tips.html

There are quite recently a few reels that are superior to the others. The last mentioned, in any case, is the most fundamental truth that each fisherman - proficient or something else - dependably seeks after.saltwater baitcasting reels

Good post here. One thing I’d like to say is most professional areas consider the Bachelor’s Degree just as the entry level requirement for an online certification. Even though Associate Qualifications are a great way to begin with, completing the Bachelors starts up many opportunities to various jobs, there are numerous online Bachelor Diploma Programs available by institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another issue is that many brick and mortar institutions offer Online versions of their degree programs but generally for a drastically higher price than the providers that specialize in online degree programs. deep sea fishing charters Pensacola
