Patrick Jones, owner of Phat Farm Outfitters, in Eutaw, Greene County, Alabama is our special guest on this edition of The Land Show. Patrick recently hosted Dave and Jonathan, as well as Dave’s father, Dr. Jimmy Milton and his son, Josh for some fun bass fishing in his stocked lakes. The group took home over 30 bass and Dr. Milton caught a nice one that went over 7 lbs. (They left the camera in the truck!) Patrick offers guided deer hunts, duck hunts, and some pretty darn good bass fishing.
Robert King shares the benefits of aerial mapping in our Farmland Report. Kyle Ingalls talks about the effects of Canadian timber tariffs on timberland in the Southeast in Timber Talk. John Morris shares a great new property for sale on Pioneer Lake in Shelby County. Tim Baker shares about a recent speaking engagement in Franklin County that meant a lot to him.
Dave filleted the fish, and Jonathan took home the bass fillets to his wife Whitney. Last week they cooked them on the grill, and here is the recipe Johnny used.
- 8 bass fillets laid onto 4 small squares of aluminum foil (2 each)
- Add a pat of butter to the top and bottom of each square
- Sprinkle fresh cracked salt and ground black pepper the fillets
- Fold the foil squares to seal in the juices
- Grill for about 5-6 minutes on each side over medium heat
The fish were so fresh and moist, it was amazing. Be sure to couple that with some Conecuh sausage as an appetizer and the veggies of your choice. You’ll be glad you did!
