Default Re: Catch and Release or...

I usually turn them out, but invariably one will be hooked bad enough to look like a marginal candidate for survival, usually when take sub surface, as with wet or drowned dry. Those do make it back to camp for supper, or sometimes for breakfast if I get up really early and try my luck near the camp first. I always "poach" the trout in stream water that has boiled, as cleanup is so much easier than frying, and de-boning easier as well. Do not wipe off the "slime." Watson
