Default Worms in Trout

I was down in Flamingo last weekend. We were there for some fishing and relaxing. We caught 2 nice trout and decided to keep them for a meal. Unfortunately they both were loaded with worms. Just curious if this is common.

Worse when the weather is warm. If you throw the filets in ice cold water, the worms will usually vacate the fillets.

Those spaghetti worms are normal and harmless to humans.

Harmless but not very appealing.

That's why you fry em, you can hide anything under a coat of batter.
Been eating them for 30 years, hasn't killed me yet. Extra protein.
