Eats & Drinks
We like to talk about the good eats and drinks in our lives. We cover fish recipes, catch n cooks, beer reviews, whiskey reviews and more.
Introducing our newest blog series… The Village Pub. This series will cover all things beer and sometimes spin off aimlessly with bourbon, whiskey, scotch reviews, conversations and more.
Starting this Friday 12/18, we will begin posting beer reviews, beer stories, beer pairings and other beer related shenanigans weekly. Stay tuned… this is happening!
We like to flirt with the harmony of extra heat and maximum flavor. This preparation method is sort of like having a fresh salsa paired with citrus kissed fresh fish… but all in one bite. I am sure I am bias… but we do it damn good!
Latest Village Talk
This is a story of when Charlie accidently caught an octopus and tried to figure out how to remove it while we did nothing to help him except ridicule and laugh. It is good stuff!

This is a story about a dude that was fishing, but wasn’t fishing, sticks a giant white sea bass and then takes all of our money.
When Louisiana was proposed as the next Fish Village scouting location it took me about 2 seconds to say, “hell yeah.” I honestly knew very little about fishing Louisiana. I had been to New Orleans as tourist, but I never really left the city. The unique eco-system, the history and the culture of the region has always intrigued me.
A write-up from Derrick Benton… the mad scientist behind 85th Day, Pygmy and GOAT. He brings his perspective on fishing for redfish in the ever changing south Louisiana marshlands. The challenge, the chase, the hunt… it impacted him and we wanted to share that story with you.
