REALLY GOOD WEEK OF FISHING AND CATCHING FOR OUR GUYS
Almost all week our guys returned with limits of trout and Redfish. Live shrimp and finger mullet by far are the best bait this time of the year. Redfish are up in almost every marsh and along the banks of West cove and Joes Cove. Speckled trout are still a little on the small side on the south end of the lake. It seems that a lot of the trout coming from up north of the intercostal canal around the Haymark area, Moss Lake and Prien lake seen to be a little larger. We really could us a little cold front to move the white shrimp out of the marsh and get some seagull action going on the lake. Call toll free at 888.762.3391 and get hooked up.

This recipe features a classic pairing of crispy duck breast fillets topped with a savory sauce. Invite your family, friends, and even your boss.
4 to 6 duck breast fillets (skin on or off)
Salt and pepper
1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil or bacon grease
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup brandy (or substitute orange juice)
2 tablespoons minced shallots (or the white part of 2 green onions)
2 tablespoons cracked tricolor peppercorns
1 cup heavy cream
[Step 1] Season duck breast fillets liberally with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add fillets skin-side down and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes until crisp. Flip the meat over and cook to desired doneness. For skinless fillets, brown on both sides for about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
[Step 2] Remove the duck from the pan and place on a plate. Cover with tented foil to keep the fillets warm. Remove the pan from the stove, pour off any excess oil, and lightly wipe down the pan with a paper towel. Combine chicken broth and brandy and pour into the pan. Return the pan to the stove and stir the contents over medium-high heat to remove any bits of meat stuck to the bottom of the pan. Add shallots and peppercorns and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook until liquid is reduced by half. Add heavy cream, bring to a boil, and whisk constantly for about 4 to 5 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Season to taste with salt.
[Step 3] Slice duck breast fillets into 3 or 4 slices. Arrange on plates and spoon sauce over the meat.
Skin On or Off? Plucking rather than skinning a duck requires a little extra time, but it’s worth it. Puddle ducks such as mallards, black ducks, and pintails are the best candidates for plucking. The skin of darker-fleshed divers can add unpleasant flavors and should be removed prior to cooking. Cook fillets until the skin is crisp, not rubbery, and then brown the other side.
