Well, last night we were able to enjoy the 2nd stage of "The Jig"....lol.

Sara fried up enough fish to feed 4 hungry adults and 4 kids. And yes, every one of these fish were caught on "The Jig", no bait.

Was good stuff! a few sunnies, a bunch of crappies and a huge perch. Along with some garlic/onion roasted potatoes & corn, indeed a meal fit for a king.

The kids couldnt believe how cool it was to actually be eating what they caught. And much to dad's delight, THEY WANT MORE!...w000 h000!!

well, as a matter of fact.........

1 lb. sturgeon steaks or filets
1/3 C mayonnaise
1/2 C cracker meal crumbs
1 tsp. lemon pepper
1 tsp. butter
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease a metal baking pan with the butter. Spread a generous amount of mayonnaise on both sides of the fish.
Roll fish in cracker meal flavored with the lemon pepper. Place fish in the baking pan. Lay a piece of foil loosely over the top of pan and place in the oven. Cook for 5-7 minutes, until cooked. Serves 4.

or

1 lb. sturgeon 1/2" thick filets, cut in half
1 pkg. Knorr Dijonne mix (for chicken)
1 Cup sliced mushrooms
3 Cups halved and sliced blue potatoes (or new reds if ya cant find blues)
1/2 Cup frozen peas
2 green onions, sliced
3 tsp. butter & 1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Cup milk
1 1/4 Cups water
Heat a skillet to med-high, add 2 tsp. butter and mushrooms. Turn heat to medium and cook until mushrooms are a golden brown. While mushrooms are cooking, place potatoes with 1/2 Cup water into a microwave safe covered dish and cook on high for 4-5 minutes. Stir halfway through cooking.
Meanwhile, place frozen peas in a strainer and run cold water over them to thaw. Let drain.

When mushrooms are browned, remove and add olive oil and 1 tsp. butter to same skillet. Add sturgeon and brown lightly, approximately 2 minutes per side. Remove fish from skillet. If there are any browned on specks in the pan, wipe out, with a paper towel or quickly wash out.

Return skillet to heat and add Dijonne mix, milk, and 3/4 cup water to it. Stir to blend and heat to boiling on med-high heat. Turn to low and return sturgeon, mushrooms, and peas to the skillet. Spoon sauce over fish to cover. Cover skillet partially and cook for 20 minutes. Just before serving, stir in green onions.

To serve, place a bed of potatoes on each plate. Spoon fish, sauce, and vegetables over the potatoes, leaving some of the potatoes around the edges uncovered so you can see the pretty contrast between the yellow sauce and the potatoes. This dish looks great served with pencil thin asparagus spears. Serves 4. (from fishsniffer.com)

I got one PB,
lay the sturge out on a gravel road. Get your vehicle and drive back and forth over it. Shake off excess rocks and sand.Now get some battery acid and soak for 3 days.j/k
glad to hear good stories Dadshamp! It is the kids that drive us parents. Which way is your choice. Getting them to drive you out to the lake to get another meal of fish is not a bad thing. Now your wife and kids are all in the same boat,literally.
That's how a family should be in my opinion.Many are not,so one at a time we bring the good news to others. Hey brother want to rip some lips?!
Keep up the good work Jim!

Keith, you have no idea how bad Sara and I want to get up there but business has been slow for the builders that I work for and money is, well tight would be a great understatement right now. The closings I was expecting will not happen until May now. So with gas at 2.90/gal, its not somethin we can do right now. Unless Uncle Sam decides to get our refund to us soon.

Until then, we take the jig to local lakes and make the regulars look like rookies. Talking to guys driving $35,000 Ranger outfits, sonars bigger than my TV, throwing road runners and fluflus with minnows...not catching a thing...at any of the 4 lakes he had been at for the day. Again, smiling because of our success with the jig and the knowledge of what it can do.


Fish...it's what for dinner smile smiley

Just keep smiling Jim.We will have a chance some day so do not sweat it. I'm glad to hear about your succsess with your children and the jig.
It makes me smile when I hear you talk about how the others are doing with there fancy gear and the fact that your putting it out there that this jig thing is NO SHAM!
when you can take a what 10 year old and out fish some "PRO",got to make a dad proud!!
Your confidence is growing every day with it. Now once we hit ice you fish it a little different ,but the end story is still the same.
