Hi there Musky, I have a question about cooking rainbows. I went out ice fishing for them and caught a mess of them the other day. When ever i cook them in the frying pan I'm never able to seem to make them firm and flakey they always turn out mushy why? Is it that maybe im using to much oil? or cooking them to long? i wonder if i baked them or broiled them? Got any ideas cause i know they aren't suppose to be all mushy,

Hey Sage, I don't use oil for trout, real butter, salt, & pepper are all I use to fry these babies. When the butter starts to bubble, drop them in, salt & pepper to taste. When the meat starts to firm up, flip them & season the other side. Yum, fried potatoes & baked beans make this a great meal.
Depending on the size of the trout. Some I cook 2-3 min. others I go 3-4 min. I depends when the meat starts to firm up. I also cook on a med. to high heat. Keep watching it and don't let it burn. Butter catches on pretty quick.
