One of the best aspects of owning a Crownline is that you can catch, prep, cook and eat a fish all from the decadent comfort of your boat. Thanks to Crownline’s impressive kitchenettes, you’re able to harness every aspect of your fishing and cooking abilities. With the weather looking incredible over the next few weeks, now is the time to get some practice in before the summer begins in full. Here is a great walleye or whitefish recipe to get you started.

First, obviously, you have to catch the fish. Head to your favorite spot and snag a keeper. For some this is easier said than done, but it is the most fun part (excluding eating it). In the spring, walleye like to hang out in shallower waters on nice days, so target shallow spots, especially weed beds and sand/gravel bars. If you’re on a larger lake look to protected, shallow bays and pools. 

Once you catch a fish, you gotta clean it. If you aren’t experienced in this regard, do your research. Cleaning a fish is not easy and any mistakes can mean getting a mouthful of fish bones. Fish cleaning takes a while to explain and would require it’s own blog post. For the sake of time, here’s a pretty in depth article that will help you out.

Okay, once you have the fish cleaned and cut it’s time to head to the Crownline’s kitchen to fire up the grill. Here’s what you’re gonna need:


Grill Safe Pan (the bigger the better



Bowls and Plates for Food Prep

Knives, Spoons, and Forks

Serving Plates



The Fish


Seasoned Bread Crumbs



Lemon/Lemon Pepper

Onion Powder



First, lightly beat the eggs in a dish until you have a consistent colored egg wash. Then, in another dish, combine the flower, bread crumbs and seasoning. Then dip the fish in the egg wash before dredging it in the flour mixture. Next, grab a pan and fire up the grill. Toss some oil or butter on the pan and let it heat up. Once the pan is nice and hot, toss the fish on. Cook them for 3-5 minutes on each side before removing them from the direct heat. If you’re prepping more fish, keep them in a hot place on the grill where the won’t get burned while you finish frying up the other filets. When you’re all done, sprinkle some lemon on the fillets. 

And you’re all set!

Enjoy your first freshly caught Crownline meal 🙂
