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?

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
