Default Speckled trout question

I've cleaned tons of rainbow trout, but never a speckled. On a rainbow there's a line of tiny bones in the center of the filet. I've always cut laterally down the filet and took them out. Do specks have that line of bones too?

Default No bones

No bones, but the area is where one usually finds the worms.

Yea, I'm sure I ate many in the past but I would try to dig them them out before cooking.

Where are they? We find them on bass and crappie up here. They are usually in the dorsal area.

Speckled trout are not truly trout, they are drum. Rainbow have totally different flesh.

They are in the thicker flesh of specks, easy to dig out if there's just a few. I've caught some that were so infested I trashed the fish but mostly there were none, or maybe one or two.

They are such a beautiful fish, with their silver and gold coloring, and a blast to catch. I really enjoyed top water lures on a calm morning.
