This is the first time I had a problem fitting the Trout in a fry pan. So next year a bigger fry pan and more feed to the Trout.

24 dispatched today and tomorrow I will start on the last 40 or so.

The second heat wave this year and after 4 days the tanks are up to 23.5c. DO is still over 9.

I took 6 trout from the large system last night and tickled them into submission. These were the largest 2, 885g for the biggest one.

Nice Trout.

I could not imagine eating a trout that size. I have been eating ones around 500g and am just getting through them. I may have to start filleting them and only go for one fillet at a time. Bugger.

Thanks. Yea, it would be a massive meal for one. We just split the flesh from a 745g one from last night between 3 of us for lunch, eaten with salad from the AP, it was just right. If I get any really big ones, I might try making steaks from it- slicing across the spine.

Unfortunately I cannot get my wife to eat any as she has watched them grow up so to speak. I am working on it though.

i certainly find that close to 1kg is the ideal size for trout, but i quite often share with a friend and it may be all we eat.

Can't be bothered carrying through summer this year so out they came as the heat rolls on.
Thanks again to Troutman for the great fingerlings.

I have had some up to 900g and I get four good meals out of them.You have the first one hot,smoked or fried and the rest cold over a couple of days.It is really nice cold and any juice laying around turns into a nice jelly when cold.Saves filliting.
