What do stocked trout taste like?

Recommended Posts

How is the flavor of the trout taken from the DNR stocked ponds(Cenaiko/Courthouse?) My experience with trout stocked in lakes in Wisconsin is that they taste muddy. Is that the case with these fish, too?

Are they ever muddy! grin.gifgrin.gif

The question is not whether the fish taste muddy or not, but whether the water from which the fish came from tastes muddy. There is no muddy tasting water through the ice and I believe MN's trout stock ponds are not muddy either.

I think they taste the same as store bought or from up north. I've only experienced muddy tasting trout once and that was from a Lk way up on the Arrowhead trail.

Myself, I think they taste kind of funky...might be what they feed them at the rearing ponds...I've heard it's something like liver, or blood pellets, a nonvarying diet to keep production costs in line?

Most of those trout stocked in the lakes like Cenaiko and courthouse pond, don't live long enough to aquire anything from their envoirment, except maybe someones bait!

In open water, I think smaller stream trout are okay and I think smaller brook trout are actually good.

A lot of what a fish tastes like is what they eat. We do fish stocked trout lakes, but we don't head over there just after the truck leaves(these aren't metro lakes either) and by the time we are catching them they have been eating what the lakes has to offer for at least a few months so the probably have gotten rid of that stocked fish taste. But they taste dang good cool.gif

    • After using tea made from chaga for awhile, I am not sure I have realized any positive health benifits. I plan to keep using the chaga tea through out the winter. I would also like to try a chaga tenture. If anyone has any tips or advice please share.
    • I would look at the camera you would want and add the proper wire for that. Most new cameras have hdmi out I believe. I wired our house with two hdmi ports for cameras. You can get long hdmi cables for pretty cheap online. Also bought little adapters and mounted to the right bench and one up front. They both run to the tv. You could do a 12V outlet near the area as well depending on how your camera is powered. I would get a forced air furnace if you are planning on sleeping in it. Ventless heaters are not safe in my opinion unless you leave a window open. I would definitely insulate it well. If you cut corners on insulation you will pay for it in propane in the long run. Depending on your ceiling height I would go with a full size 12v ceiling fan.  They are nice to have and are not too expensive.  We have recessed puck led lights from superbrightled.com they are a little pricey but I like them. They have similar options on amazon that are much cheaper. Porch lights were from super bright as well.   
    • no idea who it was, i was asked to be a mod years after that in the bird forum. 
    • I would definitely include one.     I would buy whatever you are going to use for mattresses or cushions and build the bunk around that.     I like having one....     12 volt RV lighting with LED bulbs. LED hole lights.     Do you live on a lake or is this going to be kept at a resort?  
    • I was up north more than ever this fall but with the bad fall weather and being busy with other things, I never even got a chance to walk the woods. One weekend I brought the gun and orange but it stayed in the truck because of cold, wet weather. My dog is not happy.
    • The Gammi’s are good!  This is a pic of my rig.  I just run 20 lb fluorocarbon to the snap and change hook sizes as needed and run the Gammi circles.   This didn’t turn out like I expected but this pike had my rig all the way around his lower jaw and didn’t cut the flouro.  It’s the same leader I used all last year, landing up to 30+ inchers.   And what do you do when you forget your tip up?  Make the next best thing with what you have.  A twist tie and candy wrapper was my flag for the weekend.  
    • Well let's see, there were 3 maybe 4.
    • So how was everyone’s grouse season this year?    It was tough getting out this year between work and the lousy, cool, wet fall but I did get some birds
