Congrats Bart.

Oh the conflicts of spring fishing and turkey hunting! It's so so tough. The crappies are running. The hybrids and white bass are going nuts. There's a huge sow bass tending a bed on a favorite farm pond... When the dogwoods start blooming, it's a sign the fisherman must fish, fish, fish...

Jakes are gobblers. But I hate plucking them. They are young, tender and so darn good cooked whole. I filet out the breast of a long beard and crock pot the legs. But jakes deserve the entire butterball treatment. They really are so so good.

Jakes are freezer trophies every time. I don't envy you the work your success caused you. But I do know how good they taste!!!

Great job Monk. They are all trophies.
The cow stripers don't show until June. Thank goodness. No distractions from turkey hunting.
