How To Cook A Seatrout 101 

Tons Of Seatrout Recipes To Choose From

If you are fishing grass flats in Florida, Texas, or Louisiana, you are bound to run into these tasty gamefish. Seatrout has tender white meat and usually is pretty good with as little seasoning as possible.  Below we included a BUNCH of different ways to cook your sea trout using the best videos on the web.  We put them all in one place so you can go back and forth between them, or try all of them at different times.  This article is part of a series of articles to help you prepare your catch for your family and friends and to help you spend more time fishing.

This is a picture of #BullbusterAmbassador, ScottFishTails with a nice sea trout he caught while fishing with a top water during the mullet run.

Before we start with all the recipes, we thought we'd start off with this video posted by "Texas Redfish Hunter" to get you pumped up.  It definitely got us excited! 

(Side note: There needs to be more videos out there like this one where there is a combination of catching and cooking.  Since we began writing this series of articles, we have often had to use videos from professional chefs instead of fishermen; we would much rather be using recipes from the angler themselves!)
