Don’t get the wrong Idea when you read some of my columns that pertain to outdoor cooking. I’m certainly no chef but I don’t think a good camp cook needs to be professionally trained in order to ‘crank out’ tasty meals. I have ‘studied’ under some of the best cooks around in hunting camps from Canada to Mexico and always tried to pick up a tip or two from each one I spent time with.

Crappie fishing at Fork has been red hot one day and ‘iffy’ the next, common for this time of year.
