OS1068: Get It While Its -Still- Hot!

Jeff was out of the studio today, so it was all about the captains, and boy, did they have all kinds of angling info to share. Kingfish are crazy, tarpon are showing up, flounder is great, and even the bait is beginning to pop in certain places. It has been a great week, but things are changing. Find out why in this episode…

Captain Kirk recommends a knife bag for filleting fish. There are some great ones available at Strike Zone.

From Captain Kevin: Obviously this is a great time for kingfish. If you’re fishing the beach or an offshore reef make sure you catch some extra bait! When you get set up trolling take your dip net and throw a hand full out. It will fire the fish off!

Krispy Kingfish Nuggets

2 lbs kingfish nuggets
Peanut oil
Corn dust or Wonder Flour
Garlic Powder


After steaking a kingfish in 1 inch steaks remove approx 2 lbs of nuggets by cutting the 4 quadrants out of the steaks with a pairing knife. They look like small circles.

Soak the nuggets in Buttermilk for approx 4 hours or overnight.

Mix approx one cup of corn dust or flour with a tablespoon of garlic powder

Drain the fish after marinating and toss in the Corn Dust or Wonder Flour lightly breading the nuggets.

With the oil heated fry the nuggets until brown on one side and turn them to continue to brown the other.

Place on a pastry screen to drain 

Enjoy with your favorite tartar or cocktail sauce!!
