I am watching “Out of the Wild: the Alaska experiment” on Netflix steaming. It is an entertaining show. It is a reality show with a group of people with minimal experience and equipment as they try to navigate the Alaskan wilderness. It is a great show and I have enjoyed following the program. The group ends up eating squirrels and such as they try to provide nutrition for themselves as they try to get back to civilization. They caught a rainbow trout (identified as an Alaskan Lake trout) that was full of eggs and ate the eggs as an excellent source of protein, and that got me to thinking. Would it be better to use the eggs from the trout (or viscera from squirrels and mice etc.) as bait to try to get fish in lakes than to eat them and get the nutrients from the ‘bird in the hand’ as opposed to the ‘two in the bush’ that the potential fish might represent?
