Whether you prefer to catch fish from a boat or through the ice, put the meat in your freezer to good use with help from a cooking-themed program at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center Saturday, Feb. 11 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Join John Motoviloff, DNR shooting sports program staff member and author of "Wild Rice Goose and Other Dishes of the Upper Midwest," and "Flyfishers Guide to Wisconsin and Iowa" to learn more about new ways to prepare your catch. After an hour-long presentation, participants will have an opportunity to taste delicious freshwater fish chowder and other dishes.
This program is free and open to the public - no registration is required.
"I've been fishing for more than 40 years, and there's still a magic to thinking like a fish and catching them-whether it's bluegills, bluefish, or my all-time favorite, stream trout," said Motoviloff. "There's also a knack to cooking fish, which is a big part of the whole experience - I always appreciate sharing my recipes, especially with an audience like Horicon's that's so rooted in the natural world."
In his spare time, Motoviloff is an outdoor writer, chef and avid sportsman. He has appeared on Dan Small's Deer Hunt Wisconsin and holds cooking seminars at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Sporting Goods Show, Janesville Public Library, Whole Foods and Wine and Dine Wisconsin.
