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!

We've added 7-up to the boiling water.

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.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.
