Went fishing yesterday on Pyramid lake out here by Reno Nevada and between 3 of us caught 25 cutthroat trout 5 of which were in the right size bracket to keep.
What is the best way to hot smoke these bad boys? I was thinking of using the OTS with some hickory or mesquite after stuffing the belly with slices of lemon. The fish will be rubbed with a bit of kosher salt and pepper.
The fish in the pic below is unfortunatly not one of the keepers :-( this fish was about 1/4 of an inch above the 20" allowed size. Most of the fish caught were actually too big to keep :-(
