My cousin Melissa was up at the Mary Jane Thurston Park and sent me some pictures of the ice break up thats happening on the Maumee River. From the looks of it it wont be long before the Walleye are running.

Dill Baked Walleye


1½ pounds walleye fillets
1/8 cup diced green onions
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons lemon juice
½ teaspoon dill weed
¼ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoon plus 1½ teaspoon flour
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup milk


Heat oven to 450°F. Spray non-stick oil in a 13″x 9″ baking dish. Arrange the fillets in the dish. Combine melted butter, diced green onions, lemon juice, dill, and salt and spread over the fillets. Cover with foil and bake for about 25 minutes, or until fish is firm and opaque. Drain the liquid from the fish into a 2-cup measure and cover the fish with foil to keep it warm. Add water (or a mixture of water and white wine) to the liquid until you have 1 1/3 cups. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a saucepan and stir in flour, salt and pepper. Blend in the cooking liquid mixture and milk. Cook, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and bubbles. Pour over the fish and serve.
