Well George for me I have been frequenting the Flat River. A bit of a drive from Chicago (800 miles) but I have been cleaning up on the white bass lately.

Small world. I made both of those for dinner within the month. :shock: I need to look for a better recipe for the Narvik. The oyster sauce made it overly salty as the butter and soup base are pretty salty by themselves. Actually, a low-sodium oyster sauce might be all I need if one exists. A meal fit for a king on the shores of any river!
