WEST WIND IS BACK BUT NORTH WIND WILL BE HERE ON WEDNESDAY
The west wind returned almost as fast as it left last week but never fear on Wednesday a little north wind will return and so will the fish. All in all the past week in terms of catching was a 6 -1/2. Catches were spotty in west cove and on the lake but the early fishermen smacked early on the east side of the lake near Hebert's landing. Trout continue to be on the small side between 12" and 16" inches. Some of our guys wanted to target Redfish last week and some of the big bruisers showed up right on time. Three of the line busters were caught on Saturday all over 40 inches. Wow

THIS WEEKS YUMMY RECIPE
Every so often Kirk Stansel heads up to his place on Lake Vernon to cut the grass but he comes back (most of time) with pure white perch fellits. I know it's killing him but he offers me a small bag for Marsha and I to have for dinner. I never turn him down. Here is the way I cook them.
I roll them in some seasoned flour and pan fry them in a medium hot skillet and browned butter. Don't need anything else... Well maybe a glass of red. Marsha likes to make a salad of some kind but that takes too long. It's time to eat.
Fresh White perch
Whisk flour, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Gently press perch fillets into flour mixture to coat, shaking off any excess flour. Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat until butter is foaming and nut-brown in color. Working in batches, place filets in skillet and cook until light golden, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer cooked fillets to a plate, squeeze lemon juice over the top, and eat
Yum Yum Yum
