This forum reminds me of when I was a kid in the early 60's. We would go up to Canada every year and catch hundreds (it seemed like) of trout. Back then no portable refrig's or freezers. We layered the fish in 5 gallon tins with lot's of salt. I guess it was good. I just remember catching the fish and salting them. Mom always took care of the cooking. Now I wonder what happened to the fish when we got home.
