    Tell you what - YOU find me an official Hooligan emoticon, and I'll be happy to post it!

    In the mean time... I understand they travel in 'mega-amounts' and... they taste great!

    Don't make me pull your finger . . . again!

    Has anybody caught any hoolies at Willow? I didn't go to 20 mile tonight, in lieu of no positive reports.

    Default Hooligan recipe

    Try this recipe for hooligan. They need a little marinating to firm them up a bit, and then are fried and baked to crisp them and reduce the oil content. You can eat them bones and all.

    First, head and gut them. Put the fish into a bowl, and add some salt and lemon juice. Mix them around a bit, and let them marinate for 15 to 20 minutes. Then flour them in a bag with seasoned flour--you know, just flour, salt and pepper. Fry them in a skillet with an inch of vegetable oil until they're browned on both sides. Then put them on a cookie cooling rack set over a baking sheet to catch the oil, and pop them in a 325 degree oven for about 20 minutes. They'll render a lot of their oil, and you can eat them bones and all.

    Default New 20 mile report

    I went today, sunday the 17th. High tide was 1:30pm or so in Anchorage. I got to 20 mile at 1:30 and the tide was still coming in. Not a lot of fish but they are starting to show. I got 18 dipping until 6pm. I saw one or two guys doing better but not a whole lot better.
    I think the incoming tide is best. Slowed at slack high, and never really picked up on the ebb tide either. Still had a long way to go to actual low tide though before I left.

    Still some Hooligan for dinner!!!

    I'm going to make the trek tomorrow (Monday 18th) from the Valley. I have a crew cab truck so if anyone wants to jump in, we can split fuel and make a go of it.

    I'm planning on leaving Wasilla around noon. Shoot me a PM or reply here if you want to go.

    I forgot to mention I only have one net so if you want to jump in, it would be good to have your own.

    I have one passenger so far and room for 4 more. I'll be leaving Wasilla around 11:30-noon.

    I have a couple spare nets I can loan out if anyone is short on gear.

    That was fun anyhow. My face is complaining about the sun exposure .

    We talked to some folks at 20 mile who had two 5 gal buckets full, but they had been fishing from 8am-3pm (I don't know how many nets). We didn't see a lot of bird activity or any belugas so the main run probably hasn't shown up yet.

    Maybe next weekend...

    A little bird told me the railroad is having problems with people on the bridge and tracks and will be cracking down. Just an FYI

    Just tried this and I must say, it is the best method I have tried yet for cooking hooligan. Even my wife who usually does not care for them enjoyed it. The baking after frying sure does firm them up.

    I also had a fair day with 3/4 of a 5gallon bucket in less than 3 hours. Not the best but better than what I've been hearing here. I'm aiming for a cooler full or so next week.

    Default Tides at 20 mile

    Anyone know how the tides at 20 mile correlate to the tides in Anch, +/-? Can't find a tide chart for 20 mile.

    Thanks,
