Recipes From Stotts Fishing

We are happy to share some of our family secret recipes from Stotts Fishing with our anglers. Besides the great fishing that we have, our anglers enjoy our BBQ lunches. There’s a lot that went into developing our fishing brand. Making sure that our loyal fishing clients are treated first class, critical! Providing them a different kind of experience, most important.

BBQ Shoreline Lunch

Serving them a hot BBQ shoreline lunch, different! Our family is surrounded by some great cooks. Lisa adds some Southern charm to her potato salad and sticky brownies. Mel Jr. got his cooking apprenticeship in Elk and Deer camps. Uncle Pete loved to Smoke fish on his Traeger grill.

Great Cooks on board

Guides and wives have embraced this part of our service. Our guided trips are a full 8 hours of fishing, on top of our wonderful beach lunch. When we sought out to be different, our lunches added that dimension to the word different. Just ask our clients that fish with us!

Enjoy our recipes from Stotts Fishing.
