The Gloved One

Many VBL guests and hosts take pleasure in making fun of the professor’s artificial limb. Others have insinuated that he is a fan of Michael Jackson. As it turns out, he is simply busy catching fish and wears the glove to protect his dish pan hands.

The astute observer might notice that one doesn’t have to go far from home to catch walleyes at VBL. When he isn’t worried about hurting himself, he is also worried about being easy on the fish…..like the harmless lake trout.

Notice the classic “beer bottle” grip that the professor has mastered.

Now for those of you who laugh at the professor, you should all be ashamed. On this trip he became increasingly sensitive about donning the infamous glove. That was a mistake.

Joe demonstrated nicely how the gill plate of a walleye (or a perch for that matter) can do serious damage.

Please send your get well wishes to Joe at the Dryden intensive care unit.

On better days, the professor was smiling widely in anticipation of the McLewie sandwich.

It turns out that fish are more segregated than humans. When we opened up the live well, there was this odd scene….walleyes on one side and perch on the other (nope….there is no divider):
Some of these boys made it to the frying pan. The picture doesn’t do it justice, but the McLewie is basically a BLT with a walleye fillet fried in panko bread crumbs and served with bacon, lettuce, tomato, tarter sauce and onion. Try it. The professor says it will make you grow big and tall.
In case you were wondering….we did make a virtual sandwich for the perchmaster. We can assure you that he very much enjoyed this treat.
