bream and bass

  1. Does anybody have a idea how to properly smoke bluegills and bass?
    I have heard that they do not do well becuase of being so dry.

    Dan, unless I'm smoking salmon I just grill fish with a smoker pak (wood chips placed in a foil pouch with 8-9 holes punched in the top) placed over the burners or on top of the charcoal.
  3. Thanks, I'll try it with this mess of fish I caught

    Dan,Ive never done bass or bluegill but have smoked a lot of trout.What I do is make a large pan or boat out of foil,leaving it open,mix up a little butter and lemon juice,lay the fish in and smoke just until done.Turning the fish over in the liquid at least once during the process keeps it very moist.You get the benefit or the smoke while not drying out your fish.David

    I have found that when catching a lot of blue gill the tin foil approach is the best way.

    Make sure you use enought butter or oil because other wise it will stick to the foil.

    The only seasoning that I put on it is Lawry's and I can not get enough fish
