Well, I had a pretty good morning. Hooked 5 and got these all the way in. Time for some brine. My brine recipe is an old one some of you might recognize. 1 gallon water 2 cups salt 2 cups Brown sugar 4 tbsp. garlic powder 8 tbsp. onion powder 1/2 cup molasses 2 oz bottle Mapeline Heat water and dissolve everything well. Chill brine to ice water cold. Cut filets into chunks skin on. Brine 12 to 24 hours, I like 24. I will get to the rest of the process tomorrow or Monday after I dry and form the pellicle. I caught these 150 feet from my back door.
