Fresh Water ExPress!

Have you ever been fishing for a specific species of fish, but ended up catching a different type of a prize fish by complete surprise? Well, it recently happened to me and my two boys. We went fishing for largemouth bass and ended up catching a nice striped bass. The kicker is that we were fishing in an area of water that hasn't been known to have stripers migrating through there for quite a few years now. Read the full story on the website about our Striper Fishing Adventure.

such as this Canned Shad Fish Recipe sent in by Jeremy from North Carolina. This shad recipe more or less lets you know how to easily can shad, much like sardines and salmon, in order to break down the boniness contained in the fish.

And here is a Pan Seared Striped Bass with Citrus recipe that I quickly put together after a recent outing.
