Greetings Fish Folk!
     Just in time for the Labor Day weekend we have wild caught, Lake Erie yellow perch (yes, it's the real thing)! Yesterday afternoon we lightly breaded and fried a handful for lunch and they were excellent. In fact, I'm pretty sure that is what dinner will be tonight, but I need to dig through my copy of 100 Freshwater Fish Recipes to find another way to prepare besides frying. Anyone out there have a great perch recipe they'd like to share?
    Don't forget the Winter Whitefish Sale is in full swing right now. You can place your order to fill your freezer by calling the store 231-755-7402 or emailing us at This year we are trying to fill orders as they come in.

Lake Erie Yellow Perch

IMG_2177Wild caught, yellow lake perch is one of our most requested fish. However, sourcing yellow perch is a challenge. There are only three places within USA Great Lakes waters that allow for a commercial perch fishery: Saginaw Bay, Green Bay and Ohio. While shopping for yellow perch, I came across Taylor Fish Company from Wheatly, Ontario. A 4th generation, family owned fishery, Taylor is admittedly the "biggest of the little guys", but has an excellent reputation for quality. Now you know me, I'm a stickler for quality and spent a lot of time on the phone with Taylor asking them about their processing operation and how they handle their fish. While I'm sure I'll cringe when the phone bill comes in, it was time well spent. Our first order arrived Wednesday night and I'm very confident that we'll be keeping yellow perch from our Canadian friends in stock for the remainder of the season.

Winter Whitefish Sale is Here!

Please remember when placing your winter order, do not count on the store being open all winter long to supply your whitefish needs.
