Have you seen Angler Chronicles on FOX Sports West Television? We’re with its host and accomplished fisherman, Sergio (above) at the annual Fred Hall Fishing Tackle & Boat Show in Del Mar. He’s a cool dude. Matt, a state record holding fisherman himself watches Sergio on Angler Chronicles every week and now I will too. The show brings viewers to the best wide open, fresh water and salt water sportfishing action on the west, including Southern California, Mexico, British Columbia, Alaska and Panama. We’d love to fish with Sergio and the gang sometime.
Matt quickly showing Sergio his state record so not to be too much of a geek.
The Angler Chronicles gang needs RECIPES — As Matt and possibly I catch more Fish, more recipes will be developed. Until then, smoke them if you’ve caught them, as there’s not much better than fresh Smoked Fish. I recently smoked Rainbow Trout caught from Irvine Lake by a neighbor. After about 4 1/2 Hours of smoking with Hickory and Mesquite Wood Chips, every Trout no matter size was moist, smoky and cooked perfectly throughout (before smoking above left/after above right).
TIPS: Stuff the inside of most whole Fish with foil to have the Fish set/swim upright on the grill, so you won’t need to turn them and they’re less likely to stick to the grill. Keep the Fish covered with smoker or grill lid. Maintain water in the pan above the heat and keep all smoking by adding coal and soaked and dry wood chips when necessary. Tips are good, but each smoker is different.
RECIPES: Several recipes using Yellowtail are linked here. Keep checking Fish & Shellfish for more.
I used to love it, but it’s all over now — It’s the Pizza at The Getty Center.
It’s different than when I had it a couple years ago. I wanted it to be the same memorable Pizza I last had there, but it’s now as pictured (above). I didn’t try it, since it was the wafer thin crust that I liked best about the previous Getty Center Pizza — Boo hoo, but we still had the spectacular view.
Start looking forward to better photography on Nibbles of Tidbits, by Matt and his new camera.
Oh boy, I’m actually going to Camp Blogaway this year. It’s already paid for. No turning back now. It happens in Southern California so I have to attend at least once. I’ll learn a few things I’m sure, enjoy the outdoors, and probably have a lot of fun, but it’s a bit uneasy setting out for it alone. Overall, adventure combined with food, and the topic of food prevails — I’m looking forward to it.

I’ve been doing a lot of cooking and eating, and should’ve been writing about it — Next meal. 🙂
