I tell you what, Ivo. I’m DEFINITELY gonna try this out, some time (along with some homemade potato fries, lemon juice, and Tabasco pepper sauce)! I’m sure folks down in the Cajun gator country (East Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama) would love this!! If I bring in a nice channel out of Balmorhea, I’ll give this recipe a try! (double thumbs up)

Joanne Barnette says:

WOW I can not wait to try this.. looks simple and easy, looks sooo good to eat. THANK YOU SO MUCH

Darth Mal says:

Followed this recipe to the letter. Fish came out beautiful. The only problem I had was that I put the completed fish on a dish with paper towels to dry. When we were ready to eat, the fillets were all soggy./ How do I keep them from getting soggy till serving time?

Steven Fav says:

Like every other video the people at Thundermist Fishing make, this is another great teaching video Ivo. My boys and I have watched you folks for quite some time now. Keep up the great work!

fallsgrave says:

Those looked great! You should market your own flour and seasoning mixture and sell it for say $6 per 1/lb bag.

Jana S. says:

Hello, what is the substitute for Old Bay seasoning? In my corner of the world I cannot find it. Love your channel. Jana

Val Desjardins says:

Why did you not include the recipe here? I was not able to tell what the seasoning was?

Kmnnz1 says:

Hi Ivo, How many rods/reels do you personally own? What is the most expensive? What is the cheapest? Which one is your most favorite?
