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?

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
