Eating tulibee

8 posts in this topic

I caught a bunch of nice tulibee the other day. I am going to smoke what I can fit in my smoker. How do they tast filleted out? I know I had some lake herring up at grand Marias a few time and they were great. According to google, tulibees, ciscos and freshwater herring are the same thing.

I tried it once and won't do it again. We fried them and they seemed really mushy and not tasty. We fried them after using the oil for crappies so maybe the oil to dirty from frying or the temp was hot enough. I would just enjoy them smoked.

HOT HOT oil and alot of seasoning and they taste ok but its just better to smoke or can them. The hot oil makes them firmer.

Does anyone pickle them? I just got back from winnie with 4 perch and a tulibee. No Walleyes though frown

Also does anyone bake these like catfish? You would think the oily meat would work well for this.

I have eaten Lk Superior herring and it was great from Pizza Luce in Duluth. I always heard that the inland ones were best smoked though.

The Tulibees from Vermilion are terrible tasting as far as I am concerned! VERY fishy smelling and taste just as bad , even smoked!

Cliff, Do you know if inland tulibees are a different subspecies from the great lakes herring?

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
