The best way to rid yourself of that pesky slime is to just dip them from the water strait into about 400 degree oil. Don't ever have to even touch them that way. (Just a Joke....don't ever try this at home) . :) :) :) :)

Jig Man,

Do you think it may have something to do with the water temps being warmer than normal most of the winter? Or maybe water quality? Is the slime the same type that they always have on them it's just a little thicker?

The area you're fishing down there it may very well be the "brown trout" floating belly up causing all of this. It'd be very interesting to know what's causing them to be slimier than normal. Have you noticed this with any of the other species?

It has something to do with the time of year and temp of the water.

Some years, I'm a year round crappie boy, and I notice this every winter.
