    Fresh Caught Trout,  with Deerburgers on the side

    Do I have a Great Son?!?!

    Saturday Bear Jr took his wife, and drove 70 miles North to the Pocono Mountains, and they caught 5 Trout. (He—4/ She—1)
    Then he drove 70 miles back home, Filleted the Trout & cleaned them up.
    Then he gave them all to his Good Old Dad !!!!

    Somebody Raised that Kid Right !!!

    So below is what “Old Dad” did with them.

    Enjoy the Pics,

    10 Nice Little Wild Trout Fillets:

    Some Butter in the pan:

    Then in go the Trout Fillets, along with some more Butter:

    Fried in butter until Trout flakes easily:

    9 Fillets plated with a few splashes of Hot Sauce:

    Closer look:

    Add a Leftover Deerburger with Melted Cheese:

    And finally some Fresh caught Trout Fillets to finish my plate———Bears Absolutely Love This Stuff !!!!

    I bet they went good together.

    I love trout.

    Do you skin them?

    Thanks Adam!!

    We fillet them & then flip them over & fillet the skin right off without losing any flesh.

    Actually the skin & tail used to be my favorite parts, but any more if you scrape the knife down the sides, you get this ugly black scum, and no matter how often you do that, it just keeps coming off.

    Easier to just remove the skin. A lot of things just aren't like they used to be.

  4. Looks great Bear. Bear Jr did you a fine job. I bet a Mule could also make a meal of that. 

    Happy smoken.

    Looks good. I like that you treat the trout simply instead of over doing it. It makes my head spin when I see people get great fresh wild caught fish then batter and deep fry it.

    Nice plate of food there, Bear!

    Thanks Xray!!

    Yeah, This is a strange batch.

    He must have caught them at more than one stream. They don't usually put all three kinds in one place.

    He was hitting some of my old haunts---Pine Flats, Decker's Hollow, Saw Creek.

    They look to be from top to bottom:

    Yes definitely strange considering that rainbows are considered an invasive species...and to have all three in close proximity.

    That brown trout looks beautiful! I used to love going for native Browns in Mud Run which is a small stream in Hickory Run state park. They would have all kinds of red and blue coloring on their scales. Although they were quite small they were the most rewarding to catch.

    Yup---I used to catch a lot of small native Brookies out of Saw Creek and Red Rock Run, and they were really colorful. You didn't have to worry about hurting them, because they would hold on to the end of a night crawler & not let go until they were in your hand. They never got near the hook. Real easy to release unharmed.

    These ran from 10 1/2" to 13 1/2"----Typical Stockies.

    Thanks Case!!

    Just keep being a good Daddy, and when you're old & decrepit, They'll bring you some fish & game.

    Thank You,

  18. That's one fantastic meal.

    I love the skin too, but I can never seem to get all the scales off, so I filet them also.  My son's not old enough to bring me any trout, yet.  I hope he ends up being as considerate as yours.  So, I am stuck with the farmed stuff from Costco.
