Taste of Louisiana with Chef John Folse & Company: Hooks, Lies & Alibis - Bass/Crappie - Toledo Bend Reservoir

In this episode, John goes to the world-famous Toledo Bend Reservoir to tangle with hard-fighting large mouth bass and the delicious white perch, locally called crappie. Local chef and restaurant owner, Randy Ziegler whips up a mouth-watering herb-baked bass on the pier. John meets local bass legend Harold Allen who talks about his time as a fishing rodeo champion. John cooks pancake battered bass on the dock with Jerry "JT" Thompson, who with his wife own Living The Dream charters at Toledo Bend. Later John shows JT how to turn the white perch (crappie) into a tasty fish burger. Then JT, his wife and friends join John to celebrate the day with a dock rocker; better hold on with two hands if you're an amateur.
