Snapper, Sunn Hemp, and Scrapple
It’s a great time of year…the fishing is good, and the anticipation for deer season is at all-time high. That’s where the guys found themselves this morning. They talked about the mangrove snapper that are swimming around everywhere right now, and the tarpon that are coming. Jeff told everybody about live shrimp being the key to catching EVERYTHING on the river. The guys also shared their thoughts on flood-tide paddle board fishing. But Jeff and Kevin also hit on food plot management, including some very interesting info on the benefits of sunn hemp. They talked trail cams, blind chairs, and a whole lot more.
That wasn’t all, though…Jeff shared his favorite scrapple stories. Don’t know what scrapple is? Then you MUST listen…but you may want to make sure you listen when you’re NOT eating.
Be sure to follow us on Facebook for great stuff all week…and be sure to send us your own great pics, stories, and questions. We’d love to hear from you!
Kevin found this chair on Amazon, picked one up…and fell in love! It’s built with strong aluminum tubing, adjustable legs, and a comfortable Oxford cloth seat. It comes with a bag, too. But as you can see in the pic, Kevin didn’t envision using this chair for lounging around in the back yard. He swears this thing is PERFECT for letting some arrows fly in a ground blind. This chair is about $40, and according to Kevin, it’s worth every penny. Click HERE to get yours!

Pan Fried Black Drum
4 Black Drum fillets, de-boned
1/4 cup cornstarch
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Vegetable oil, for a shallow fry
2 Meyer lemons, zest and juice, 1 garlic cloves, minced, 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, 3 tablespoons capers, drained, Flat leaf parsley leaves, for garnish
In a small sauce pan make the sauce. Melt the butter with the garlic. Cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Next add the lemon zest and juice and capers. Swirl together and let cook for a few minutes or until it reduces slightly. Set aside and keep warm.
In a cast iron skillet, pour in vegetable oil to reach about halfway up the side. Bring up to heat over medium.
While the oil heats up combine the cornstarch, a large pinch of salt, a small pinch of pepper, paprika and garlic powder together in a shallow bowl. Mix to combine. Dredge the fillets in the cornstarch mixture, shaking off the excess.
Once the oil is up to heat carefully place the fish in, skin side down, and fry about 2-3 minutes on the first side. Flip and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel.
To serve place the fried fish on a plate, drizzle with a little of the warm sauce and garnish with parsley leaves. ENJOY!
