boil in water, meat will turn white. some melted garlic butter and you are set. I've also had them deep fried, ok, not fantastic. Bill

hmmm???

how about...boil in water, meat will turn white. some melted garlic butter and you are set. I've also had them deep fried, ok, not fantastic.

or maybe be...Ive always boiled them in water and they taste pretty good, never tried any other way of cooking them

one other thought is...Cut backstraps out, Boil in water, dip in butter. Oh yes cant forget the beer to go with it.

I think I have about covered the different ways to prepare..hehe!!!!

actually we add mountain dew to the water...seems to add a little sweeter taste!!!!!

just get your water rolling pretty good before you toss the meat in. You want to cook it fast, that helps keep the meat firm, you don't want mushy pout. We often put some salt in the water.

Butter for dipping is a must, Pick up some "old bay" seasoning at the grocery store, (square can, yellow) sprinkle some of that in the boiling water before you drop the meat in. Maybe dust the cooked meat a little with the old bat before dipping. It'll compliment the shelfish texture of the pout nicely & add to the whole "poor man's lobster" effect.

Good luck, happy pout skinning!

Dwalleye,

One tip I picked up last year when I cooked my first pout was that it will boil for 7-10 minutes and when the pieces float to the top of the water and look like they are flaky; they are done. 5 of us are heading up to the pond on Sunday so hopefully we'll get one or two as well. I haven't tried the Mt Dew or 7-up, but have heard good reviews.

I would reccomend nailing it to a 2x4 and set it next to the campfire for about 1to 2 hours. Or until chared. Then take the fish off the 2x4 and then eat the 2x4.

I just tried poute for the first time this winter, and it's pretty tasty when cooked properly. It is said that poute is the poor mans lobster. I broil for about 3-4 minutes then bake in the oven (in foil with some butter inside for about 8-10 min). Looks may be deciving but when prepared properly these slimers can be quite delicious.

      Did you access that stretch from Wilson Park, or below Cathedral High School @eyeguy 54?  
    • phishnerd

      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
