Liberty Lake 9/16/13

Went out to Liberty to try and use up some minnows I had left over from my trip up at the Maumee River. The water looked really cloudy and hardly anything was biting. Couldnt get no catfish to hit on the chicken livers or glow worms but did get a taker on a minnow. Ended up landing two bluegill and I ran into a friend of mine, Bobby, who gave me two bluegill to go with the ones I had. Gave up after a group of teenagers showed up and started acting like fools.

Homemade Hush Puppies

Here is one of the simplest recipes that I have used for years.


1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup self-rising cornmeal
2 eggs, beaten
¼ cup milk
1/2 cup white sugar
1 onion, diced
salt & pepper


In a medium bowl mix eggs, milk, sugar, and onion. then add the cornmeal, flour, salt and pepper together. Mix until you get it to a nice thick consistency, then  drop rounded teaspoonfuls of batter into the hot vegetable oil, and fry until golden brown.
