There's nothing like being on your boat, enjoying the water, and soaking a line. But the fishing opener of 2013 in the Northwoods is looking like the ice may win in a lot of places. In some places we still have 20" of ice. Some flowages are getting there but the inland lakes are still covered. In some cases you could ice fish but, it is getting unsafe for that as well. It sure is the rock and the hard place scenario.

So here is the 2013 fishing opener substitution for the ice out blues. Every time you take a little trip to the potty, you can practice your game. With 3 squirmy fish, a fishing rod, a vinyl printed pool to fit below the bowl, and a 'Do Not Disturb' door hanger you're completely set!

This hilarious game of skill is perfect for any avid fisher, game enthusiast, and anyone that lives in a location with ice still on the lake. Or, it's just a plain fun thing to have at the cabin.






















Have a Great day.

When I woke up this morning and the temperature was over 38 degrees, I panicked. I thought, that it wasn't possible that we MAY be out of the winterness that is northern Wisconsin.

But I was also excited because it is FISH FRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY FRIDAY!!!

Right now it looks like there will be ice on the lakes for next weeks opener. Rivers are good but not the inland lakes. But Bob Kimble has a recipe to share once you start to reellin' in the taste treats. Today we dine on Kimble's Wonderful Walleye.


The Parts:
1lb walleye fillets
3/4 c. milk
1 egg
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 cup flour
1 cup cracker crumbs
1/2 cup corn flake crumbs


Makin' It:
Put milk, egg, salt and pepper in blender, turn on low speed to combine. Slowly add flour and blend until batter is smooth. Pour batter into a bowl.

Combine cracker and corn flake crumbs in a separate bowl.

Rinse walleye in cold water, drain, pat dry with paper towels.

Dip fillets in batter, coat with crumbs.

Deep fry at 350 degrees until fillets are floating and golden brown. 

Place on paper towels to drain.

Sounds great Bob. Your fish fry is on the way.

Now don't forget, if you have a recipe that everyone should try get it to me. All recipes can be sent by e-mails, letter, or dropped off her at the studios in Eagle River. If I use you recipe on this blog you will receive a FREE fish fry to a local restaurant.

Can you believe that we are almost out of April? We are about to sign the papers to get the WRJO Slot Machine out for the summer once again. This year we are bringing Lac Vieux Desert along for the ride and they have lot's of great prizes for you to win. We will also try to give away three grand prizes again of $10,000.00, $5000.00, and $5000.00. It's always free to try, just keep listening for us to tell you when to come out starting and take your turn.

With that all said, that means summer is on it's way soon. That also means that fun summer treats are on the way, like watermelon. if you know one thing about watermelon is that it is a pain in the butt to slice up. But a guy is going to instruct you how you can go about it a bit quicker. Click the link and get ready to take some notes.

Happy Monday.

I guess if you can call winter conditions that will not leave the Northwoods "happy". We get peaks of spring here but then we also get Mother Nature reminding us who is in charge. We still have 24 - 30 inches of ice on most lake in the area as well.

Believe it or not, we will be under a Winter Storm Warning starting at 7pm tonight with more snow on the way. 

With that in mind, I saw this over the weekend and thought how fitting it is. It not only say's I love Garden Gnomes, but it say's this winter garbage can kiss my tookus. This by the way is an actual garden gnome that you can purchase to put in your garden it is just not an edit job.






















Hopefully The Gnome brought a smile on another dismal day.

Well someone ticked off Mother Nature. More snow for the Northwoods. But on a positive note, if you want to ice fish, there is 29" of ice on Lake Minocqua.

Speaking of fish, it is FISH FRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY FRIDAY.

The Parts:
1lb Bluegill filets
1/2 cup condensed cream of onion soup.
1 tbsp. milk
2 tbsp. butter, melted
1-1/2 tsp. lemon juice
3/4 cup coarsely crushed sour cream and onion potato chips
Pepper to taste


Makin' it:
Rinse filets and pat dry with paper towels.
Combine soup and milk in a shallow bowl.
Dip filets into the mixture and place in a baking dish coated with cooking spray.
Sprinkle with pepper and salt if needed.
Combine butter and lemon juice; drizzle over filets.
Top filets with potato chips.
Preheat oven to 350°F.

Well happy Tuesday. What a dismal day again, but I guess it's spring and that is what we will get.

The Northwoods is starting to see robins show back up. We had 5 on our septic area where the grass is showing last night. Must have been some hot worms, DELICIOUS!

Speaking of delicious. I thought the brownie chap stick was the best....check this out.






























 
Now I don't know which one to get. Oh the hard decisions in my life.

Have a Great Tuesday.

OK, now were talkin'. It's finally FISH FRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY FRIDAY!

It's going to be a snowy night to go out and get a fish fry, but it is FISH FRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY FRIDAY!.

Today we get our recipefrom Merlin and Dorothy Wolowski of Woodruff. Merlin said that he just loves this recipe because he loves to fish and eat fish, and his doctor likes it because it's not fried. Today we dine on Merlin's Oven Cooked Fish.


The Parts:
1 lb. Norhern fillets
1/4 c. Vinegar dressing (2 parts vegetable oil to 1 part vinegar or lemon or lime juice)
1 c. dry bread crumbs


Makin' It:
Preheat oven to 500°F.
Pat fish fillets dry and then dip into the vinegar dressing.
Now dip into the bread crumbs.
Use cooking spray to grease cookie sheet and place fish on it.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until fish flakes easily when tested with fork. Serves 4.

This sounds very good Merlin. May have to give it a shot this summer. Your fish is on the way.

OK, I saw this and knew that we are living in the best of times.

The only problem is that I would probably get addicted to it, or just enjoy it like a popsicle.
























I wish Christmas was closer so I could get myself some. That way it looks like a fun gift, not a cry for help.
