I was watching a Guy on T.V. filleting trout and he was cutting out the little hair bones on each side :confused: I've never had a problem eating these.Do you Guys worry about them?

I've always found it easier to cook them whole and remove the backbone along with the ribs together. But I'd put trout on a list just above carp.........JMO..:)

Why in the world would anyone fillet a trout?

Like MM they are pretty low on my list of yummy fish---unless they are smoked then they crowd no1 pretty hard.

I dont worry about them either. As long as trout are not froze and fried up fresh I think they are pretty tasty.

One Shot my ole grandpappy used to always say-sometimes-the closer to the bone-the sweeter the meat?

Hatchery trout are far down the list. Native brook trout on the other hand are in the top five of tasty fish.

Specially if you are in the mountains of Montana like I was back in 1992.

Trout is good eating if you dont try all that baking with lemon and crap. Gutem, skin em, rmove fins and head.. Roll the whole fish in egg, and then in finely smashed crackers, then drop in hot grease. The meat will just fall off the bone with no work after cooked. :wave:

I fillet my trout. Just makes it eaiser to deal with when preparing to cook. I remove any rib bones let in the fillet. We like to deep fry our trout! We used to bar-b-q them, but have gotten away from the recently.

I just rip the sides off and don't worry about those little bones. Just score them up and you won't have to worry about them.

If you guys don't like trout, you aint fixing it right or something because I rank it just below crappie. :cheers:

If you get tired of frying and want something different that's pretty good, take your fillets and cover them in butter, lemon pepper, and garlic salt and a slice of bacon. Grill them for a few minutes till fish is flaky and then broil for a few minutes to crisp the bacon. :rock:

We fillet some and leave others whole (minus head). If I fillet them, I usually cut out the "belly-bones", just like I would a bass, bluegill, etc. It seems more palatable to my wife when I fillet, but in many cases you lose a fair amount of meat, even when done pretty close to perfect.
