Brook Trout

Brook Trout

Trout Species – Brook Trout
by: Brett Fogle

Brook Trout: Frequently gullible, yet extremely tasty, Brook Trout are wonderful trout to fish for - especially since they frequently inhabit the most beautiful stream settings in the U.S.

The Brook Trout was originally found in the Midwest and along the East Coast. It is sort of the Eastern counterpart to the Western Cutthroat trout – with its range extending all the way from Canada down to the streams in Georgia. Interestingly, the Brook Trout is not even part of the trout family, but instead belongs to the Char family of fish that also includes the Lake Trout and Dolly Varden.

Brook Trout live in clear, cold waters. Due to the cold waters and the fact that Brook Trout live a shorter life generally than rainbow and Brown Trout, Brook Trout usually do not grow nearly as big.

Today, most of the best Brook Trout fishing is no longer found out East.

The cold, clear water that Brook Trout prefer no longer exists like it use to. Instead, Brook Trout are mainly found in the Western United States (mainly due to transplanting) in the colder rivers and lakes of the Rocky Mountains - especially in higher lakes that often require hiking to reach. Canada also continues of provide excellent fishing for Brook Trout, while Argentina is now also home to some of the worlds’ largest Brook Trout.

Brook Trout are also small due to another factor – over planting. Brook Trout have been so extensively planted in many lakes and streams that there are starting to be too many of them. This overcrowding often leads to stunted growth. Of course, the plus side of this is that these small Brook Trout are extremely easy to catch and they taste good, too! Of all the trout in the world, for the angler who absolutely must take home some fish at the end of the day, taking home some Brook Trout is a good way to satisfy the palette without compromising the overall fishing quality.

The Brook Trout is a beautiful fish. It’s sides and back consist of various shades of gunmetal gray, with highlights of orange, red and cream spots. The fins of a Brook Trout also have a white edge around them and during spawning season, the bottom of the Brook Trout turns a beautiful orange-red color.

Fish Burgers

Fish Burgers

For some mouth watering Fish Burgers

Tilapia Fish Burgers

by The Maitre D


This past weekend we had a group of friends over for an evening barbeque. As you would know from previous recipes we have published, we like to provide our guests with something outside of the usual on our barbeque. In this case, several of our friends did not eat red meat. That meant that while we would still provide some good ol’ red meat for those who wanted it, we had to come up with some alternative to keep everybody happy. The solution was fish burgers, in this case using tilapia, although almost any fish would do. Well the guests who tried them raved so much about them that even our red meat eating guests tried them. By the end of the evening I was out of fish burgers and had lots of the regular ones left un-cooked and un-eaten. Try these out for your next barbeque and see the great reaction you’ll get from your guests.


Ingredients:



1 ½ pounds of fresh Tilapia, minced (almost any other fish like tuna, salmon, snapper will do just as well)



½ cup dry breadcrumbs



¼ cup finely chopped green chives



¼ cup finely chopped radish



1 ½ finely grated ginger root (check the end of the recipe for a tip on how to easily grate garlic root)



2 tbs chopped fresh cilantro



1 tsp sesame oil



2 tbs sunflower seeds



1 tbs lite soy sauce



1 tbs fish sauce



½ tsp ground cumin



¼ tsp salt



¼ teaspoon black pepper



1 egg, beaten


Directions:


In a bowl, thoroughly mix minced tilapia, breadcrumbs, chives, radish, ginger, cilantro, sesame oil, sunflower seeds, soy sauce, fish sauce, cumin, salt, black pepper and egg. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes


Form into patties (this recipe makes 6) and then cook them as you would any other burger, either on the bbq or under the broiler. Being fish they will cook faster than a regular hamburger so put them in later or move them to an upper rack once they are done.


Enjoy!


Tip on grating ginger root - freeze the ginger root whole. Take it out of the freezer just before you grate it and it will grate with ease. You don’t even need to peel it.
