sweet, sour & spicy asian fried fish recipe

We caught white perch and crappie, and my mom showed us that you can make a simple sweet, sour, and spicy fried fish dish from it.

So the fish that Jason and I caught were given to my mom. She then made a sour fish soup from it. Below is the recipe video, please check it out if you get a chance and please subscribe if you want to see more fishing recipes.

football & fishing

So the Panthers didn’t win the SB50, but I’m still happy that they made it this far to the Super Bowl. Last night our offensive line was terrible. Cam didn’t have good coverages and was sacked many times. And the referees? What side were they on? I wish the media would stop spewing forth disparaging comments about Cam. He’s just being himself, and he has a true passion for football. He makes football fun and exciting for everyone of all ages. After all, he’s the NFL MVP of the year!

Since now football season is over, I’m ready to do more fishing. My husband and I decided to make a fishing video to capture every fishing moment that we do together so that 50 years down the road when we couldn’t fish anymore, we would have something to look back and enjoy. Here’s our first fishing video. Hope you get a chance to check it out and subscribe for more.

winter fishing


So this past weekend Jason and I went fishing at Lake Norman. It was a high of about 53 degree. It’s not unusual that we go fishing in the winter time and catch fish. It may be hard, but you just have to look for them. I caught several white perch and bass in 30 ft. of water. It was so much fun. We used jigs and live minnows. We were actually looking for crappie, but we never had any real success with them. People keep saying to look under docks, brush piles, trees, etc. We’ve tried and caught a few that just happened to be out of nowhere. So whatever fish that we catch, we’re just as happy.

Jason has a depth finder on his boat and we use that little device to look for structures including drop-offs, cuts, and other typical contours that holds fish. It’s a really useful device to have with when fishing. I think without it, we’d just keep casting and hoping to catch something when perhaps there may be no fish around or near it. Another thing is that the water temperature plays a significant role in catching and finding fish. This explains why we were able to catch white perch and bass in deeper water during this time.

Here’s a fish taco that we made from our white perch. It was absolutely delicious!
