    Default Eating Lake Fish

    Does anybody eat Rainbow/Char that are 8-10" in lakes??

    Usually people say that they are to small and throw them back.

    I caught some 8 and 10 inch char/rainbow today and i am gonna eat them.

    Just wanted to know what you guys thought.

    For eating those are ideal. I love to fry those little guys up crisp.

    I think you'll find the "sportsman" prefer to catch larger fish, but, the diners are happy to eat what God provides.

    If you're camping and you catch those and cook them in the first hour or so after catching them, I think that's some delicious eating. I've actually taken my camp stove with me ice fishing, partly to make coffee but also to toss a couple little rainbows in a pan and eat them right out on the lake.

    It just seems that trout's flavor drops off if it's kept in a cooler or the fridge for a few hours or overnight. Still good if you know how to cook fish, but sort of like shrimp: if you can eat them fresh from the water it makes a world of difference.

    I'll keep them if'n I'm hungry and thats all I'm catching, or they swallow the gear, then I keep them also.

    I think you will have a pretty good meal.....they are best just out of the water but fry up fine if kept on ice overnight.
