The sun is shinning again. :cheers:
After two weeks of winter weather and water temps down to 7 degrees, my small SP's had all but stopped eating.
This afternoon, the water temp is back up to 14 degrees
The little guys emerged from the depths and are feeding vigorously.
Great to see em back. :D

So, I reckon it's time to start harvesting some trout....

Is there any need to purge them? (or is purging only required for fatty fish?)

If so, how?

harvest? you've got another couple of months growing season minimum :)

no purge needed. catch,kill,scale,gut,cook.happy tummy. :)

i've found that taking the flesh from the fish without getting a million tiny boes is an art, but once mastered you can be left with almost a complete skeleton on the plate and minimal bones in the mouth.

nothing like the jades though :( they were like stick fork in and slide flesh off.............dumb warm weather states...............

Sorry, "harvest" is the wrong word.
I've got a few reasonable size fish.
I'd like to start grabbing a couple every now and again, rather than "harvesting" them all at the end of the season.
Looking forward to fresh AP trout - "happy tummy" :)

I've never purged my trout but after cleaning them I sometimes soak them in a salt water solution for a while B4 cooking. It helps to remove the blood from the gut cavity and it seems to remove any off taste, even though without the salt it wasn't really that bad. A bit of lemon and oregano while cooking helps too.

OK, did it again just for you...... (Oh, and father's day)

Pan fried AP Rainbow Trout in butter with AP spring onions, celery and parsley.
AP snow-peas, spinach and lettuce on the side.
Accompanied by Dad's homemade herb-bread and guacamole.

Tasted great!

We noted that the flesh is white, not orange-pink like the trout in the shops.
Any idea's why?
