Fishing For Flavor This Weekend On "Kentucky Afield" TV
Finding the right recipe and a farm full of happy faces on “Kentucky Afield” television this weekend, June 26 and 27.
Carp may not be the first fish you put on the dinner table, but not because of a lack of flavor. This rough fish, while it is labor-intensive to clean, is quite delicious to eat. Host Tim Farmer heads to the Barkley and Kentucky Lake tailwaters to bow fish for bighead carp, and then to his kitchen to test recipes.
Meanwhile in Butler County, the National Wild Turkey Federation is sponsoring a kids-only event. Fondly known as JAKES (Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics and Sportsmanship), this program gives youth a chance to explore the outdoors. The thrill of the day for most was hooking catfish.
