LIMITS OF TROUT AND REDFISH CONTINUED ALL WEEK

LLimits of speckled trout were easy to come by early in the morning most all up and down the lake from Turner bay to the old jetties. Good catches of trout and redfish have been good drifting oyster reefs in the afternoon on moving tide. It seemed that all last week we were catching big over size redfish along the ship channel that would give you all the action you could handle. Four or five of the big boys (all over 35 inches) were caught and returned to fight again. Call toll free at 888.762.3391 and get in on this summer time action.

Check out a few of the pictures and you can see them all (and there is a lot of them) by clicking here.

Andrew Campbell from Houston scored this beautiful 29 inch speckled trout while fishing with guide Jake Darnsteadt. This was his first time fishing on Lake Calcasieu. I'm told he caught it on a live shrimp on the last cast of the day. WOW - WHAT A CATCH ?

THIS WEEKS YUMMY RECIPE

View in our recipe book here

Fried Chicken Sandwiches with Slaw and Spicy Mayo

Slaw doesn't go with this fried chicken sandwich, it goes on the sandwich, along with a healthy dose of spicy mayo.

INGREDIENTS

Spicy Mayo and Slaw

  • 1 garlic clove, finely grated
  • 1/2 cup  jalapeno  mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Louisiana-style hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeno, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups thinly sliced cabbage
  • 1/2 cup Bread-and-Butter Pickle slices, plus 1/4 cup pickle juice
  • Fried Chicken and Assembly
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt plus more
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 8-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breasts, halved crosswise
  • Peanut or vegetable oil (for frying)
  • 4 white sandwich rolls
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

RECIPE PREPARATION

Spicy Mayo and Slaw

Mix garlic, mayonnaise, and hot pepper sauce in a small bowl; cover and chill. Toss onion, jalapeno, cabbage, pickles, and pickle juice in a large bowl to combine; cover and chill.

Fried Chicken and Assembly

Whisk flour, pepper, and 1/2 teaspoons salt in a shallow bowl. Pour buttermilk into another shallow bowl. Working with 1 piece at a time, dredge chicken in flour mixture, shaking off excess. Dip in buttermilk, allowing excess to drip back into bowl. Dredge again in flour mixture, shaking off excess.

Pour oil into a large heavy skillet to a depth of 1/2-inch. Prop deep-fry thermometer in oil so bulb is submerged. Heat over medium heat until thermometer registers 350.

Fry chicken until golden brown and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a wire rack set inside a baking sheet; season with salt.

Spread cut sides of rolls with butter. Heat another large skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, cook rolls buttered side down until browned and crisp, about 1 minute. Spread with spicy mayo. Build sandwiches with rolls, chicken, and cabbage slaw.
