Lure of the week

Lure name: J.R.’s Frogwalker

Company: Reno Bait Co. (renobaitcompany.com)

A camp breakfast is fun with fishing.

Frogwalker

Lure type: Topwater

Sizes and colors: Available a 5-inch model in five colors: green white belly, green orange belly, chartreuse white belly, brown chartreuse belly and black orange belly.

Target species: Largemouth and smallmouth bass and northern pike.

Technique: Imagine taking your standard hard, walk-the-dog-style topwater bait, the skirt from a silicone spinnerbait and the legs from a hollow body frog and melding them together in a sort of mad scientist way. What would you end up with? Probably the Frogwalker. It’s a somewhat wacky but said to be effective combination bait. Pull it forward in a zig-zag pattern and the hard body creates a disturbance on the water reminiscent of a struggling baitfish or frog. Let it rest and it drifts back ever so slowly, causing the skirt and legs to flare out. A video of it in action is available on the manufacturer’s website.

Sugg. retail price: $5.99.

Notable: On the market less than two years, this lure if the brainchild of Indiana, Pa.’s Joe Renosky, co-creator of the Banjo Minnow and Bionic Minnow.

Tip of the week

Tarps don’t generate the kind of excitement that new tents, hammocks, hiking boots, backpacks and stoves do. But don’t underestimate their value. When it comes to camping, they have a variety of essential uses. A tarp beneath your tent, for example, is a great barrier against runoff or groundwater, while one slung over your hammock or camp kitchen keeps rain at bay when sleeping or cooking. Lightweight ones tend to be more expensive but are great if you have to carry them far. Heavier, bulkier ones are fine for car camping.

Recipe of the week

Overnight cheese casserole

Ingredients

  • 6 slices whole wheat bread
  • 3 cups grated cheese (flavor of your choice)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 sun dried tomato, diced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Here’s a camp breakfast recipe from “The New Trailside Cookbook” that you actually start after dinner.

Arrange the bread slices in a greased metal baking pan, or even a disposable aluminum jobs. Sprinkle the bread with half the cheese.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the eggs, milk, onion and tomato. Mix it well, then pour it over the bread. Top with he remain cheese, salt and pepper.

Cover that with foil and store in a cooler overnight.

The next morning, bake the bread slices in a Dutch oven for about 35 minutes or until browned. Let stand until cool enough to eat, then serve.
