If you grew up in Indiana, I think it’s a given that you like sweetcorn. I’ve been eating sweetcorn as long as I can remember. You know summer is in full swing when you have the first sweetcorn of the season.
Most people cook their sweetcorn in boiling water. I love it this way, but it also tastes great on the grill. If you have never tried it this way, I think it’s worth giving it a shot.
Here’s how I cook it.
Peel back the husks about to the base. I like to peel it in two sections; it wraps back up better this way. Don’t peel it too close to the base (the husk may fall apart) or peel it all the way off (you’ll never get it wrapped up).
Remove the silk just like you normally would do.
Wrap the kernels back up with the attached husks.
Fill a container or sink full of cold water and allow corn to soak for 20-30 minutes.
Shake off all the excess water. Pull off any loose or straggly husks at the end (they will just burn off anyways).
Put corn directly on preheated grill.
Cook for about 15 minutes on medium to low heat. I like to turn them often.
You know they are done when the husks get a good charring on them.
Season them to your taste and enjoy! This is a quick, clean, and tasty way to cook a summer favorite.
There is a common thought in bass fishing, if you want to catch bigger fish, use bigger baits. I agree with this, but you typically don’t get as many bites using larger lures. I personally like catching all sizes of bass and hate to throw a bait that I know will only get a few bites.
One large lure that will catch big and small bass alike is a 10″ worm. This bait looks more like a snake in the water than a worm. Don’t let that bother you, it will catch all sizes of bass. I like to use the Berkley 10″ Power Worm. Black is my favorite color. That’s the only color you need. This bait works in clear and murky water.
Huge worms like this seems to work the best in very warm water. Bass get a little lethargic in hot water and like a slow moving meal. They normally will not pass up an opportunity at eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner all in one bite.
One misconception I have heard is you can only use big baits in big lakes and that you must use small baits in small bodies of water. I recently proved that theory wrong. I fished my pond using this lure and caught multiple small and large bass. Think about it, have you ever seen big snakes or bull frogs around small ponds? I know I have. Bass in all sizes of lakes and ponds are used to eating big things. Try this lure and see how it works for you.
