You can get a three day for less than $20....

Airport is within site of the flounder area, what time should I pick you up. Actually the approaching jets fly over me while I'm fishing.

Dan, these are pretty good with crab stuffing also....thanks to a recipe Dawn gave me.

John,
I'm an avid fisher woman, but being in Mn. it's mostly pan fish. I fillet and batter, and fry. Sometimes fillet and put on the grill with butter. So tell me about flounder, can you compare the taste for me ? Most people would say...dah it taste like fish. Not so for me. I love walleye, sunfish and crappies. And yes they all taste different. Beautiful catch by the way ! Best to you as always, Katie

They call them specks down here...speckled perch to be exact.

Flounder are super mild and not an oily fish, very light and delicate.

I love fried fish as well, but my wife doesn't like me to fry fish too much.

So I fillet these out, you get four nice fillets from each fish BTW.

Anyways I fillet these (absolutely no bones), and put them on a cookie sheet sprayed with a little PAM first.

I make some stuffing by sautee some chopped onion and celery, add in a little shrimp, scallops and crab if I have it.

Take that and put it in a mixing bowl...add about a cup of Panko Bread crumbs, add an egg, a little fresh parmesan, a teaspoon or so of Old Bay Seasoning, and a small splash of lemon or lime juice.

Then a scoop of mayo, and some heavy creamy. Mixing it until it's thick and gooey, but not not clumpy like thick oatmeal...sort of thinned oatmeal, it doesn't hold shape...add heavy cream to thin it.

Then a few tables spoons of the stuffing on each piece of fish and bake on 350 for about 25 minutes...just don't over cook it as the fish will dry out.

I think of you often my friend....

I know doing what you do on a daily basis probably becomes routine after awhile. I know you adjust to the situation dealt you. But can't begin to imagine what you have had to deal with over the years.

My hat is off to you bud....

Best,
John

So good to hear from you.....glad you are "on top" of things.

How are you, your wife and your doggies doing ?
I think I remember you/she had brought some new pups home with you ?

I think you need to go visit John and do some fishing....(that is if he left you any that is).

Great catch!

How do you stay out of the sun in the Sunshine State?

My wife/nurse/helpmate/taskmaster rigidly enforces the doctors recommendation and won't let me outside when it is sunny! How do you get away with it?

I didn't go out much during treatment. I've been done with the rads and chemo for over three years now.

Most of the time when out fishing and doing yardwork I still wear long sleeved shirts, a buff and a floppy hat.

Though I pretty much always have shorts and flip flops on when not at the office.

I'm bad about sun-screen so I stay covered up pretty much...

I also get scanned at the Dermo every six months...whom still gives me crap about being in the sun so much.
