Title: "Spokane Beauties"
Post by: AL WORRELLS KID on January 16, 2021, 12:36:13 AM
After a Full Day of Fishing in the Summer heat on West Medical Lake, my Mom and Dad arrived back at the Boat Launch, Skunked!
 They both were surprised when a couple of Soldiers who were also leaving the Lake at the same time, offered to give them their own stringer of beautiful Trout.
Oh, No!  They exclaimed, we couldn't do that after you worked so hard to catch them!
But they insisted, and  Mom and Dad gratefully headed home, looking forward to a fresh Trout Dinner.
It wasn't until they had Fried up a Batch of them and were sitting down to Supper when they realized why the Soldiers had been so eager to hand them over to them.
Never in all the years fishing in Minnesota had they ever eaten such "Muddy" tasting fish!    :puke: 
 The Soldiers must have laughed all the way back to their own Barracks, just thinking of those Rookie Fishermen from the "Land of 10,000 Lakes" taking their first bite out of those West Medical Lake, Summer caught Trout.

Common, quality and quantity often clash.  The warm ponds of the channeled scab lands are notorious

Never been a trout fan, although I'm sure good cold water trout are fine. I remember a big trout I caught in August in Lake Curlew as a teenager. We killed it and brought it back to the cabin for my friend's grandpa to eat. It was kept cold and gutted right away and the meat still pulled away from the bones and smelled. They are it, but I remembered that and vowed to never kill a summer trout again.

Muddy or not I'll eat deep fried trout tails any day of the week.   :drool:
