"Combat" Trout

6 posts in this topic

Brother and I survived our semi-annual adventure into "combat" fishing on one of our local trout lakes and each came away with a limit of the little rainbow delights.  Now, what are some of your favorite ways to prepare these critters?  I usually just pan fry them gently after dusting with a little seasoned flour and maybe use a squirt of fresh lemon over it before eating.  But, I would like to get some other ideas that have been tried and voted keeper by the diners.  I want to have some guests over for dinner who haven't eaten trout before, just walleyes, which they love.  Since trout and walleyes have their own flavor characteristics, I don't want them to be turned off to the trout.  That's why I am reaching out for ideas.

Wishing you all a safe, successful season for whatever species you are after.:)

Serve them fresh as you can. Growing up in Southeast MN I fished for trout a lot. We cooked them on the grill with a little oil on them and salt and pepper. They were awesome tasting, wild fish orange meat is the best. I froze them once and wanted to serve to some relatives. They were awful, very fishy tasting after freezing for some reason.

Trout poppers.......butterfly fillet, sammy up cream cheese and jalapeño pepper jelly, grill in foil. The little stockers cook quick.

Grill them on a cedar plank. Fillet and leave the skin on. Put on whatever seasoning you like.....lemon, dill, S&P etc.

Going off of your location, I think I know where you went.;)  Congrats on limiting-out!  can be tough in a put/take pond when you're elbow-to-elbow with the fish-starved masses. I haven't done it in years, but always had fun

Brine' em and Smoke 'em!

That's the only way I'll ever cook trout again.  Love fish..Trout?  Not so much, but SMOKED is one of my very favorite things.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
