Make Sure your Boat is Winterized!

Make sure to put storage stabilizer in the fuel, Change the fuel filter, change the oil and filter, Change the lower unit lube and drain the manifolds if you have an inboard engine. If you don't know how to do these things call your dealer and pay for the service. This can save you lots of money next season.

The Best Winter Vacation

The Best Vacation we've ever taken was a two week stay on Crooked Island, Bahamas. You may think that you need shopping and lots of people and party activity on a vacation, but I bet you would change your whole outlook on life if you spent 2 weeks on the family Island of Crooked Island and you will have plenty of Sun and Sand and almost all to yourself. You will become a part of the family in no time and the food is great. If you like seafood you won't be dissappointed. Great Family style meals. When you take a 4 mile walk on the beach you most likely won't see any other footprints and if you like to fish you will find plenty of action. To the crew of Village Bonefish Lodge; Thank you for the great food and Fishing trips.

Smoking salmon!

Tis the season to smoke salmon. This is the time of year that most salmon get smoked.
The best recipe I've found for a good brine is as follows
3 cups water (filtered) we don't need clorine.
1 cup of salt
1 cup of brown sugar
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 cloves garlic (minced)

Put the fresh fillets into brine and let it sit for 8 hrs.

Remove fish from Brine and let them air dry on paper towels.

When the pieces are dry then put in the smoker with alder chips until desired doneness is reached (for average Salmon filets, about 10-15 lb fish, that will be about 8 hrs). Make sure to keep the smoke going for at least 6 hrs).
It works real good for me!
