    I'm stupid so bear with me. The fish is in a bucket. It appears to be a perch or sunfish trout. I have a hankering for fish and want it cooked as soon as possible. So, do I just throw the seasoning on it and put it on the hot coals and roast it alive? Is this how it's done?

    You have to cut off its head and remove its internal organs before you can cook it. All sorts of nasty parasites and bacteria live inside of animals.

    Also you need to scale it and make sure after it is cleaned out, you wash it good.

    Once you do all that, put some butter, some lemon juice, some spices, wrap it in foil and then put it on the grill..meat will come off the bone.

    Then throw it on the coals, making sure that no bears are around to steal your kill. After flipping it around and cooking it for about 25-30 minutes, sautee it in a pan with butter and garlic, serve with scalloped potatoes and have some candelight setup so you can have a romantic dinner in the middle of the woods by a river.

    Cutting off a fish's head is overrated... heads taste good. Especially the eyes.

    It always amused me when my family served fish and our guest/s would be shocked to see that the head was still on the fish.

    "It still has the head! You animals!"

    E Coli levels around our fresh waters have been high lately, I've been more nervous to even fish lately.

    Compared to the heated apartment potential girlfriend, and the untrained climb up K2, I'd give this thread a C+.

    Ok, braincrusher, I'ma break it down for ya:

    Clearly. Also it's "bare" in that usage.

    Fishing for a fish that's already in a bucket is like shooting a deer in one of those hemmed in enclosures. Where's your sense of sportsmanship?

    It's very important that you make a determination which, as sunfish trout that are not cooked properly carry e.boli.

    That's what Patient A of the e.boli outbreak of 1976 said...before he was inadvertantly responsible for the deaths of 100,000 men, women, and children.

    :dry:

    Dude, it's not a lobster.

    You don't use seasoning. You slather it with peanut butter and then coat with a fine layering of salt. It makes it taste like chicken. Trust me.

    You betcha!

    You should gut it first, and do you know how to fillet? You could just cut off the head, descale, and roast it over a fire, but it should definitely be gutted. Filleting, batter/breadcrumbing and pan-frying is also great with just some lemon.

    Perch is okay to eat. I don't think there's such thing as a 'sunfish trout'...you can have a sunfish, which is lousy eating, or a trout, which is excellent eating.

    If it was caught in a pond/still water, it's probably not a trout. If it was caught in a stream or moving river, it could be a trout or perch, or a bass. Check these pictures. All fine to eat except for sunfish.

    You would think so, but consider that bears love their fish and often have existential quandaries regarding whether or not to cook and/or season them.
