Pittsboro, NC - If you catch them, eat them. It is beneficial to the fish population to remove caught fish and make room for others to grow larger.
If you need a delicious and easy recipe here is one for fish under four pounds. Leave the head and scales on. Just gut the fish. Lay it on aluminum foil and liberally add zesty Italian salad dressing or your favorite dressing choise with modest oil. Wrap in the foil. Bake at 350 degrees longer than you think you should - 30-40 minutes and even longer for bigger fish. Unwrap the foil. Peel the skin and the scales will come off with it. The flesh is like poached fish.
You must know your bony anatomy so you may eat safely - easy with bass, only tricky ridge is the line of small bones between the ribs and backbone. Brim a little trickier, so be careful
Fresh caught pond fish can be very healthy and delicious and easy.
