Fish On!!!

 I have a great recipe for trout!

    Saute 2 shallots until transparent.  Add in 1 TBS fresh coarse ground black pepper, the zest of 2 lemons. fresh dill, and deglaze with with wine.  Let this reduce until the wine is almost gone. Let cool for 1 hour and then blend with 1 lb. softened unsalted butter. Roll into a tube and then wrap in a jacket of Saran and foil. This will keep in the freezer for up to 6 months.

  I use this butter when I cook trout in a foil packet with other veggies.

  David O.

  p.s. I went out today and caught 6 trout over 12 inches in less than 2 hours. Then the rain stopped and so did the fish.

      Damn nice catch!!  I envy you! You really should try the butter recipe though. Just put it into the cavity and cook as normal. Great on the grill.

    The Butter is a compound butter, and yes you can use it on Fish or even put a pat on a steak after its broiled. The method of cooking is call "En Papillote" or Fish in Papillote. In a Restaurant you will see this made with a fish fillet and thin sliced Julienne vegetables wrapped in Parchment paper. The compound butter can be made with whatever Herbs and spices you like................BillyB

    sizz, they're great grilled.  I fish for trout here in central PA.  I've grilled them with a barbecue sauce in the past and they were great.  The way I usually do them now is to grease one side of a sheet of alum foil with plain butter, or whatever souped-up butter you prefer.  Take your trout and place it on the foil and again, load up the cavity with however much butter you like, some onions, fresh lemon or lemon juice, salt and pepper.  Some grated parmesan cheese is sprinkled into the body cavity and on the outside.  Then take about 1 T of garlic wine vinegar and sprinkle that over the whole business.  Shake some lemon pepper on there if desired.  Make a pouch around the trout with your foil and bake it at around 400 for 10-12 minutes for small trout.   Somewhat longer for those monsters pictured above!

    If you're handy enough with the blade, great.  I waste too much meat filleting trout so picking around the bones is the way to go for me.  I've never caught anything approaching the fish sizz posted sizewise.  A 10 inch brown is hard to filet, speaking for myself.   By the way, one could still fillet the trout and do them in the same manner with the foil.

      This will work for any fish. It is especially great on salmon and halibut.

    Catfish is my freshwater fish of choice here in the "South/MidWest". I have enjoyed Walleye Sandwiches a few times locally and on our Wisconsin visits. Smoked Salmon and Lake Trout from the UP MIchigan Smoke-houses is good too.

    Out West we caught Stripers in the SoCal Aquaduct and in Lake Powell.  Cooked whole over charcoal with the inside stuffed with lemon and lime and orange slices  was a very good meal. The Striper bones were much like Catfish, in that they remained 'Attached' to the frame and were easy to 'eat-around' !

    West Coast Saltwater provided my 'most-likes' I love Halibut steaks, Breaded and deep-fried, grilled with citrus, or even baked in a sauce (not as high on the list). Ahi Tuna, with fresh Albacore at the top of the chart, was a real hit too.  If our fishing wasn't good, I would eat the Bonito were were always able to catch...after carefully trimming the surface stripes of dark (read stinky) meat off the white meat. Those filets were also good on the grill.

    While I like Salmon, it is not at the top of my list. I find it gives me a reaction to the fatty meat that is "unpleasant". You Gall-Bladder patients understand I am sure.

    Other seafood is also high on the list, but I will stop at this point. 

    Frank, Your skills at catching them are excellent, Keep the photos coming!

    Grew up in rural Western PA with Native Brook, Brown & Rainbow Trout and Lake Erie White Fish, (Before Polution) at Friday Nite Church and Elks Club Fish Fries!
    Lived in Pensacola with Grouper, Snapper, Shrimp, Oysters, Mullet and Crawdads.
    Now in AZ with Mrs Pauls Fish Sticks- UGH!
    Although, Northern AZ has some good Lake & Stream Fish but I'm not a patient Fisherman any more.

    Fish ON............................ 
    The big guys we have been waiting for all Aug/Sept. finally showed up .... Fishing just 1/4 mile up river from the Antioch Bridge (California Delta)and in less then 20 minutes time we caught 5 fish all in the 15 to 20 pound range It was a crazy circus in the pitch black darkness (5AM)where at one time Frank Jr.and I both had fish on........... and after 20 min. the bite was gone.. I saved two small ones for fish tacos the big ones would most likely be females and we always  release the girls ...besides how much fish can you eat?

    Moose is hard to come by in central NY, but I happened upon some ground moose a couple years ago, and made the best chili I've ever made in my life with it. I'd eat that all the time if I could.

      Another great catch Sizz!!!  Those stripers look good enough to eat. I would think that those are out of the limit range for size. (breeders) I try to throw back females of any size to help with population.

    Sizz, stripers? You have stripers?


    Yes Michael we do have Stripers in California 
    Stripers were introduced to California from the East Coast way back in 1879. Just like on the East Coast they are migratory. Most adults after spawning in the San Joaquin Delta & upper Sacrament River move back out to the oceans salt water for summer & fall.  In late fall & winter some fish move upstream to the fresh water in the Delta & lower Sacramento River.  About one third of the spawning takes place in the San Joaquin River between the Antioch Bridge and the mouth of Middle River and thats where I keep my boat. The other two thirds  spawn in the Sacramento River between Sacramento & Colusa. These rivers are critical to the spawn.  But for some odd reason they don't seam to be as big or as plentiful as you guys have on Cape Cod ,RI,Conn. and the Chesapeake Bay. Twenty to thirty pounders are our big guys. Michael if your interested here is more history on Stripers in California

    I was kidding sizz. I've caught stripers out in your neck of the woods -- the American River one fine July day. Bet you didn't know that there are now lots of inland lakes that hold stripers, and then there are the striper-white bass crosses called wipers that make their homes in both inland rivers and lakes.

    I was riding along the California Aquaduct way-south near it's terminus at Silverwood lake when I saw one of my students fishing along the 'bank'. The Aquaduct is all concrete, with pumping stations every few miles, and is noted for being a good place to dump stolen cars when the need for the car is over. This is barren desert, with no fresh input for 450 miles or so from the Delta area that Sizz describes. Anyway I joked with the kid about fishing a 'barren river'.  He then showed me his cooler full of 5-10 lb Stripers, he had several, and said he had only been there for an hour or so!!!

    Another time they had closed off and 'pumped out a 2 mile section near our home (to repair the river-bed)...It had only a foot or two of water in the bottom, and you could see the fish everywhere. 
    For folks who are used to the concept of river or lake fishing, finding all those fish in a huge concrete culvert seems really weird !
