ah too bad ..for me catch and cook on site is the best part of fresh water fishing. In my youth we lived in a place that was bounded by watershed land of a reservoir. I fished as often as I possibly could. The reservoir was fed by a stream that exited a swamp and necked down to 10 feet in a spot that oxygenated the water. ( I learned to do gas level from water and knew when it was prime time for Brookies ). I would gut them and cover them with olive oil, put them on a spit and flame cook them. Also pack them in clay from the stream bed in one spot and toss the ball of clay into the coals till it turned red. Toss the hot ball into a pail of water and crack it open to eat. The best part was that the game warden never caught me holding over the limit.
