    I fire up one last load of smoked fish. It typically takes me four outings to get enough to load the smoker.

    Was fishing on Crawford Richland County line today and caught 20 trout in 3 hours.
    The smallest of the three above was 13 inches. All caught on a size 9 gold panther martin.

    Smoked Fish Recipe:

    plastic 10 quarter container
    1/2 full with water
    1.5 pounds non-iodized salt
    1 pound brown sugar
    2 cups real lemon
    10 tablespoons dill weed
    8 tablespoons red pepper flakes
    4 tablespoons garlic powder
    4 tablespoons onion powder
    3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

    Soak over night in brine...put cutting board on top of fish to hold them down in brine.

    Use the brine for hydro part of smoking.

    Sprinkle red pepper flakes and dill again all over and inside the chest cavity.

    Smoke for 4 hours in my hydro electric smoker.
