Winter Fishing Forecast •Brown And Rainbow Trout • Cod, Pollock, Haddock And Jumbo Porgies.• Rons Recipes: Baked Cod And Potatoes

Brown and Rainbow trout put into these lakes and rivers, move around to seek shelter and find food. As the water gets colder they get more active to find their food and this is where the angler is going to want to dip a line.

If freshwater is not your thing, but love the cold. You should find your self on a local charter boat. Sailing almost every day these boats are targeting Big winter cod right now. Many of these boats seem to be hanging around local wrecks and producing Cod, Pollock, Haddock and jumbo Porgies. Medium heavy conventional tackle, is what you will be looking to use. Simple high low rigs tipped with fresh clam bellies always do the trick. If you are looking to increase your chances for a catch try putting a florescent jelly worm on your hook as well.

Ron's Seafood Recipes

Recipe: Seafood Gumbo

In a large pot stir together 1 cup of flour with 1 cup of canola oil. Use a wooden spoon when stirring so you dont damage the finish on the pot. Cook over a high heat stirring constantly for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and cook for another 8-10 minutes while stirring. Add in 2 large chopped yellow onions, 3 stalks of chopped celery, 1 chopped large green pepper and 1 cup of chopped green onions. Cook and stir for another 5 minutes then add 4 cups of chicken broth, 8 cups of water, 4 cups of sliced ocra, 2 tablespoons of paprika, 2 teaspoons of oregeno, 2 tablespoons of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper. Bring the entire mixture to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for another 10 minutes while covered. Add in 1 lb. of cleaned peeled and deveined medium raw shrimp (no tails), 2 lbs of small bay scallops, 1 lb. of cooked andouille sausage cut into 1 inch pieces and 12 little neck clams (clean the shells before using). Add in 2 tablespoons of Cajun seasoning and simmer until the clams open. Serve over white rice with hot sauce (optional). 

When preparing this recipe its a good idea to pre-cut all of the onions, peppers, and celery. Have the shrimp and clams cleaned, the sausage cut up and all of the other ingredients out and ready to go. The rice can be cooked in a seperate pot when you have added the seafood to the gumbo and are waiting for the clams to open..............More
