    Not bait. Trout are 2nd on my list for favorite fish to eat. That being said it's pretty bad when only one lake in western NE is getting stocked. Actually it's some BS. Game and parks need to get their A** straight there are people out here that like to fish and hunt too. BS I tell ya BS

    I agree wholeheartedly that the people who live west of Lincoln get screwed on a reg. basis when it comes to fish and game,and about anything else that is run by politics.
    But,those little stockers don't taste that good to me,and are a great size for bait! :wink: but if I catch any they'll most likely end up in the smoker,it's the only way to make them edible:big_smile:

    Greg Wagner from G&P says he was raised on the Platte River and considers trout as great cut bait for channel cats. He has told that to me personally and he claims that it's not well nevermind:0a19::big_smile:

    So , yes bait if you like. If they are caught from ice cold water they will taste much better.

    Don't sweat it jeff,I'm mainly just yankin your chain:big_smile:, around me anything can just about be considered for bait,and probably already has been! When it comes to big cats anything goes for me,it's an addiction! For eating though I prefer walleye,yellow perch,crappie,and smaller channel cats from cold clean water.

    yannie was stocked with bigger trout the biggest being 13lbs in kearney good luck to the one who gets that one on their line trout fight prolly harder then cats, but yes trout work awesome on the river especially when it gets cold and i know some good concrete pillars to throw them under =).
