    2018 walleye s

    They are very good. Nice white flaky flesh. I'd say on par with walleye. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    2018 walleye s

    With turkey tags filled and some walleyes, Browns and panfish in the freezer we made our annual trip to my brothers in Cape Cod. Although there seemed to be less big sea bass than last year there was no shortage of fish. Caught some nice ones up to 20" and a couple nice tautog as well.

    walleye flesh looks wrong

    The ones I posted on last summer had very little meat on them. Checking with fisheries biologist they thought it was sandy flesh disease. I didn't eat them. A few others were also caught in the river but none in DEC netting samples. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United

    Indian River lakes panfish

    I hit a local lake and the bluegills crappies, pumpkin seeds, and rock bass are moving Into the shallows along the shorelines. Caught about 6 crappies, and 20 nice bluegills as well as many throwback rock bass and largemouths in a couple hours. A bobber and jig and popper and fly rod both worked well. I thinks the next week or so they should really turn on. You could see many fish in 6 fow or less. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Yep, pressure cooker would speed up the process. I use it to can venison, goose, salmon, and Browns. I sometimes forget it works great on tougher meat. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  7. Definately need to keep it fun. As previously said, in the case of kids size doesn't matter. Kids like to be involved in all aspects of the trip; driving the boat, setting the lines, watching the graph, netting the fish, listening to the radio, etc. Plenty of snacks and drinks and just keep them involved. Amazing how quickly the pick up on things, particularly when they are assigned a job. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United

    After dressing and skinning my bird I breasted it, cut off the thighs for another meal. I then sectioned up all the bones including the heart, gizzard, liver, drumsticks and neck then threw them in a pot with onion, garlic, carrot, celery, dried tomato, salt and spices. Brought it to a boil and then simmered for several hours till meat easily pulled from bones. When strained it made a wonderful stock and I picked 2.3 pounds of meat off the bones which I added to the stock. I made a delicious soup and froze another batch in a gallon zip lock. It's a shame so many people just breast their birds and all that good meat is wasted. Even the drumstick are good and tender if you simmer and remove tendons. I know it's is time consuming and easy for me to do being retired. I understand that many may not want to take the time but I get at least three more meals from a bird than if I were to simple take the breast. One or more from each half breast, one from the thighs. And at least 2 from the broth and meat used for stew or soup. I have also ground the thigh, leg, heart, and gizzard and mixed with pork to make sausage. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United

    2018 walleye s

    Went back to Cardinal Ontario yesterday morning and we only caught 2 small walleyes. Mr Walleye had a banner weekend up in Quinte from photos he sent. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
