ANNUAL SPRINGTIME NEMESIS STILL AROUND FOR A WHILE ------ WIND

Northeast wind came in Sunday night bringing a little rain after dark. The good news is it's blowing some of the freshwater (that we have had most of the spring) out of the system and bringing in badly needed saltwater. Live shrimp are still in short supply but all of this should change later this week. Light north wind will be welcomed the last part of this week and fishing should be good.

Give us a call toll free at 888.762.3391 and check availability here at the lodge. Here are a few pictures from last week and you can see them all by clicking here.

THIS WEEKS YUMMY RECIPE

View in our recipe book here

This time of the year the water is warming up and our blue crabs are getting more plentiful here on the lake. People that know me well will tell you that my most favorite foods are shrimp and lump crab meat. Check out these fantastic appetizers and let me know how you like them

Avocado and Blue Crab Appetizer on toast

  • 1 loaf ficelle or thin French baguette
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus 1/4 cup
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper, seeds removed and diced
  • 1 avocado, halved, pitted and flesh diced
  • 1 shallot, finely diced
  • 8 ounces lump crabmeat

Directions

Slice the bread into 1/2-inch thick slices. Lightly brush the bread slices with the 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Arrange the bread on a baking sheet fitted with a rack and bake until lightly toasted, about 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool before topping with the crab mixture.

In a large bowl whisk together the lemon juice, 1/4 cup of olive oil and salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.

Add the yellow pepper, the avocado, shallot and the crabmeat to the lemon vinaigrette and toss gently, so as to not break up the crabmeat. Top the bread slices with about a tablespoon of the crab mixture and arrange on a serving platter.
