One of the easiest and quickest ways is to sprinkle the fillets with lemon pepper and grill them (or broil) for a short while (5-10 mins med heat depending on thickness). They are done when the muscle separates easily with a fork in the thickest portion. I recommend leaving the skin on for grilling and taking the skin off for broiling. The skin is easy to remove from grilled fish, not so for broiled.

If I wasn't too lazy to type it all, I'd make the joke about cooking them on a board over a fire, then tossing the fish and eating the board:) I'm not a big fan of lakers, eating wise, but they're fun to catch.

The key is not to cook them for too long. Five to ten minutes tops. Fresh lean lake trout is a delicacy.

Inland lake trout are some of the tastiest lake fish available.

You can pan fry them like you would a walleye - on the bigger fillets slice the fillets thin enough so they cook evenly.

You can cut off the head and tail, gut them out, put them in foil and bake them alongside the campfire. (Add whatever seasonings you like)

You can fillet and skin them, cut the fillet into serving-size portions and then put them in a sealed foil pouch for grilling over the campfire or on the bbq grill.

They are excellent smoked - probably my favorite smoked fish.

Some of the seasonings I have used in the foil include: onions, garlic, green pepper, lemon (slices, juice, lemon pepper), butter, bacon, salt and pepper, Mrs. Dash, paprika..... Experiment a bit, and find what you like.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
