Snipe eaters...

8 posts in this topic

Anybody eat snipe out there? We shot a couple of snipe this weekend and cleaned them up - but all the duck meat got mixed in the marinade bowl and we lost track of which pieces they were. Didn't get sick yet, but just curious if anyone else bothers with cleaning/eating the little runts.

Thought about shooting some of the little buggers but never did. We saw a lot of them around us. We had a bunch of Rails around too, they tempted us but Ike said they don't taste very good so we decided against it.

My group takes them when we can. Not much meat on them, but it's pretty good... similar to dove. Usually breast them out, wrap a strip of bacon around the meat, pin with a toothpick and grill. Good stuff.

Our party has had good luck with marinating them and then grilling them with using their pointed bills as skewers like kabobs. Let me know if you try it.

Wrap them in 1/2 slice of bacon on a skewer or thick toothpick, marinade in soy/sauce & brown sugar, and grill or broil them. They are excellent!

Hey dead eye blind,

Skewered meat on their beaks, eh? I challenge you to put your "snipe meat" where your mouth is. The next time I see you, I want to see your culinary creation and watch you actually eat it. smirk.gif

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer
