Happy Birthday Ray!

Ray had a great time limiting on Redfish and catching some big ones for his birthday.

Blackened Redfish

The most popular and my favorite way to cook Redfish is Blackened.

To blacken Redfish is quick, simple and tastes so good.


Redfish Filets


Blackening seasoning (make your own, see below)

Directions – Cooking this is best done outside, due to smoke. Heat a cast iron skillet to HOT. Melt butter. Dip or coat each filet in butter. then coat each filet with blackening seasoning. Then place filets in the HOT skillet cooking about 2-3 minutes on each side, depending on the size of your filets. Serve hot and enjoy!

Blackening Season:

1 tablespoon sweet paprika

2 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon cayenne powder

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1 teaspoon dried basil


Randy had a great time wrestling with this 32 inch monster Redfish.

Got Crabs!

There is more to catch in Louisiana than just fish. My son and I had a great time catching these Blue Crab and an even better time having them for dinner.

Jill set the hook on these Calcasieu monsters and more, on one of the most beautiful days to go fishing.
