I was trying to give the easy peasy lemon squeezy version but Mr. Claus is correct. I do this as well but figured that a newbie might not want to...

I very rarely keep any fish whatsoever but if I do, you can bet it's going to be a couple of fat brook trout. Sorry but they just taste the best especially with some lemon and butter... however, I feel that I now need to also experience the Southern style 'cornmeal special' as well...
