Trout Gutting 101: How to Clean Your Catch [VIDEO]

This video demonstrates a quick and easy way to get your catch ready to be cooked.

Not everyone grew up with parents or a family that took them fishing. I’m amazed when I talked to my co-workers about fishing, how many of them have never gone.  I tend to take it for granted that I was brought up in a family where traditions and skills like cleaning and field dressing game where a part of my childhood. Also, many people have never eaten trout from the stream. Make sure to take at least a day this spring and catch your dinner. This video will help you get the process started … after you’ve caught the trout, of course.

It’s one thing to catch a trout, but it’s another ball game when it comes to gutting them and getting them ready for the dinner table. Watch as this angler demonstrates a quick and easy way to gut a trout following the catch. Even if you are an experienced angler, this video may show you another way to get trout ready for a meal.

One of my favorite days of the year is the opening day of trout season in Pennsylvania. I travel back to my hometown and fish with some new and old friends each season. After we catch our fish for the day, I’ll travel home with my dad and my mom will cook up the catch. Another great experience is camping by a good trout stream, catching some fish with friends and then cleaning and cooking your dinner over a campfire.

It doesn’t get any better than that. But, first things first, you have to get the trout ready for the fire. If you haven’t done this yet, why are you still reading? Get fishing!
