Hayward Fishing Hall of Fame
The Fish Dish hits the road when Marie and Sharon take a trip to the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame in Hayward, Wisconsin, where they tour the facilities and gardens and meet Emmett Brown, its executive director. The Hall of Fame’s mission is to preserve the historical artifacts, heritage and history of freshwater sport fishing, but there’s much more to it, including sasquatch replicas and a giant muskellunge.
In the “Fish-o-Licious” part of the show, Sharon and Marie cook a rainbow trout recipe called, “Dad’s Mushroom Masterpiece.” They are joined by a mysterious special guest for the taste test.
