I love swordfish! It's great on the grill!

I prefer to stay away from Carp, Sheephead, and Dogfish. Especially ones from the Minnesota River. I might add that I have handed over many Sheepheads to other anglers I have crossed paths with bank fishing that have practically begged me for them.

Bullheads! A friend of mine cooked them up once and they were awful!

I would never knowingly eat carp, dogfish, gar, sheepshead or other scavenger types and I am not really too fond of catfish.

Oh yeah, and I'm always leery that my ex is feeding me some type of poisonous filet....with good reason of course.

I ordered Red Snapper at a restaurant one time and it was full of bones and tasted like swamp water. Never again. And carp is used for fertilizer in the garden.

I think I'd have to say Carp or any kind of Suckerfish. Although I do like to catch em!

I'd have to agree with ya on the swordfish. Had it once and not only was it expensively bad it had left a nasty taste in my mouth for the rest of night. Not crazy bout fresh salmon or bass, (other than yellow bass or smaller stripers). Catfish is good but pond cat's taste a lot different/better than any freshly caught outta lake or river cat's do.

I know I am going to be torched for this one. I have tried quite a few times, but just dont care for Salmon. Ive had it when its good, and when its not so good. More not so good times than good..

I'm not a Salmon fan either....don't like the texture of it, but maybe thats just how it's been prepared...

All kidding aside, I can't think of a fish that I've eaten that didn't taste good....and I've tried a lot.

Its not the taste that steers me from swordfish, its the fact that they are being fished to extinction, and they are full of mercury.

Bluefin tuna is the other big one I try to avoid.

suckers out of lake superior streams are good, both smoked or brown sugar grilled.

I like salmon in small quantities. I can handle a small portion but too much is overwhelming for me.

. I can't stand smallies.

Smallies taste like mud. I won't eat pike either.

I love salmon and almost any kind of fish but i would never eat endangered fish! We have such a big choice of food anyways so why eating animals that are endangered i think that is ridiculous! And i don't understand people doing that!

    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
