WE CONTINUE FIGHTING BROWN AND FRESH WATER IN THE LAKE ON BOTH ENDS

We fought fresh water and short supply of live bait all week here on Lake Calcasieu. Most of the lake remains brown but when you can find some clear green water usually you can catch some nice fish. Most all of our guides continue to fish the south end because they have been able to find small patches of good water holding some good fish. Live finger mullet proved to be very good under a cork. We have not had any reports from up north where the fresh water remains the story. Here are a few pictures of some of our better catches last week for you to enjoy and you can see all of them by clicking here.

SPECIAL THANKS TO LJA ENGINEERING FROM HOUSTON

Last week one of our favorite groups was all aboard here at the lodge for three days of fun, fishing, food and fellowship. Each of the past few years LJA Engineering president Calvin Ladner and James Brown from Houston come to our lodge with employees and customers for a little R & R. and southwest Louisiana hospitality. They are super nice and we look forward to seeing them here at the lodge every year. THANKS AGAIN GUYS

THIS WEEKS YUMMY RECIPE

View in our recipe book here

One of our customer's favorite meals here at the lodge is Tina Guidry's Cornish hens. What could be better a whole Cornish Hen roasted to perfection with asparagus, mashed potatoes and her famous bread pudding for dessert. Come get you some.

Rice Stuffed Cornish Hens

  • 3/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 3/4 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup butter, divided
  • 3 cups rice, cooked
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 Cornish game hens

Preheat oven to 375 F. In a skillet, saute onion and celery in 3 tablespoons butter until tender; remove from heat. Add rice, raisins, walnuts, honey, lemon juice, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Mix well. Stuff hens. Place on a rack in a large shallow baking pan. Soften remaining butter. Rub over skins. Bake uncovered 1 hour or until the juices run clear.


My Thought

Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.

 

Have a great week and remember "Ya Shoulda been here yesterday"
