Four fantastic fish feasts you can make on the ice.
There’s absolutely nothing better than catching, cleaning, cooking and eating your fresh fish in the wintertime—right out on the ice. Keeping things simple and doing a bit of prep work at home are key to enjoying a hot and tasty lunch during the slow fishing times, and these four recipes are sure to warm your heart and soul.
Along with the ingredients listed here, all you need is a portable camping stove and a few pots and pans. And one of the great things about these dishes is that you can use any white-fleshed fish: walleye, northern pike, yellow perch and catfish will all do the trick.
