Favorite tasting fish?

Recommended Posts

I know somebody is going to say it so I'll get it out of the way- MUSKY!

Seriously now, my favorites are Red Lake Crappies!, sunfish, & walleyes. I don't eat northerns but I here they're very good. A lot of people swear that Eelpout are the best tasting fish that swim. I still haven't gotten up the nerve to try a pout yet!

Crappies would have to be my favorite. Man those are good.

Of course Walleyes are tasty but nothing beats a good batch of crappies.

I also eat the occasional trout I get from the the put and take lakes around here. Generally try and grill them if I can or of course putting some nice rainbows in the smoker is always a good choice.

Any saltwater fish but the ones I like the best are fresh small bluefish or king mackerel. Striper is good as well. These fresh water fish do not have a lot of flavor (but I love catching them). If I need to pick one fish from this state I would take a small pike.

Best tasting would be a Brook trout on a crustation diet. Rodney Danger Field category has to got he the pout with its texture of shrimp and when dipped in butter a fools lobster.

frozen, the wife won you a Marcum, and she cooks for you??? Haha!

I will go with yellow bullheads, the best! These are by far my favorite tasting fish. I enjoy walleye, but they are honestly pretty bland compared to other fish in my opinion. Here's my list:

Yellow Bullhead
Crappie
Eelpout
Yellow Perch
Bluegill
Walleye

You guys are gonna think I'm nuts when I'm done, but here I go (I'm only including fish I actually fish for, not saltwater):

1. Trout
2. Catfish
3. Walleye
4. Bluegill
5. Crappie

Yes, I'll admit it if no one else will--I eat bass out of lakes where there are many small ones, and I think they're quite good. I also eat perch when they aren't full of grubs and bullheads and even freshwater drum. I wouldn't eat a northern or a smoked sucker to save my life, but I'd like to try eelpout once.

I knew the musky comment would be followed quickly with the timberwolf comment wink.gif Got to add a little humor to something once in awhile.

Fish taste different depending on size and the body of water they were taken from. But generally speaking, my opinion:

1. medium-sized perch
2. small-to-medium sized crappie
3. bluegill
4. small walleye

yum!

I was wandering what everyone thinks is the best tasting fish, and what fish deserve more credit?

My choices for the best are:
1. Perch
2. Sunnies
3. Walleye
4. Crappies

Thanks,

Coldwater perch (through the ice) might be my favorite...followed closely by walleye, crappie and northern. The walleye and northern, if they get too big, aren't as good. Walleye under 20", and northern in the 21"-24" range are awfully good.

Northern is probably the one I would say deserves more credit...other than the bones, northern rival most other fish as table fare.

I have to say my favorite is a nice 16-18" walleye pulled from the coldwater of LOTW. Have it in the pan the same day it was caught up there. Can't beat that in my book!

Breeze The Sauger's are yummy for sure. At lotw yrs ago on a trip, we ate them in the ice house as the guts breathed in the corner. But to me? after thinking about it,nothing beats my dad's (luv ya pop I miss ya!) Apple wood smoked Red horse in brown sugar and Worchestier brine.

    • Whats everyone's thoughts on this new feature? https://www.navionics.com/usa/blog/post/ais-in-the-boating-app/  
    • What you are doing is even better than what they hope to achieve with the law. I do the same thing. My minnows never see lake water while in my possession except while riding on a hook. It is not possible to transfer invasives via my minnows or minnow container unless they came from the bait shop and the result would be same either way.   This brings up a good question. Aren't minnows trapped in lakes and streams? They could contain microscopic versions of invasive species and therefore be responsible for transporting them to every lake where the minnows are used. Even those raised in rearing ponds are potential threats if the rearing ponds become infected.   Unfortunately, it is impractical (not impossible) for a CO to know that my minnows have not been in the lake. He would have to take my word for it. As a result, unless they catch me taking my aerated minnow cooler from my boat to my truck, ....  
    • I see they got Eddie & Cron back last night but now Buxton's out again. It didn't help though as they played a sloppy game & beat themselves.
    • Work related travel.  Never been to the northeast before and wanted to experience it as much as possible so I drove and took a couple extra days.   Original plans had me touring some stuff in the DC area but its been a little more difficult and expensive to wander about than I’d hoped.   Get me to some water!!!
    • Most of the fish I've caught out of the abyss were caught just above the thermocline or high in the water column (1'-15' down). A friend of mine once caught a 31" hog walleye on a top raider over 100'+ of water. That's just one of the many hogs to come into my boat that were 0'-5' under the surface in mega deep water. So, keep your lures above the kill zone on slot lakes and you'll still get bit.
    • To young to be retired whats up with all this Wandering?  Didn't you just come back from Musky fishering? 🤔
    • Walked the Inner Harbor a bit, ate soft shell crab and took in an Oriole’s game at Camden Yards today.  Oh, and finally booked a SHORT trip on Erie to catch on the ride home.  Better than nothing.   White water rafting tomorrow will have to do for my most significant Maryland experience.  This put a little chill on me when I noticed what it was.     It’s a nice place to visit, but... you know the  rest.
    • Tried my hand at making Nashville hot chicken last night. It didn't turn out exactly like I expected but it was still good.  
    • Great fish @Lals!   You sound like we did on the way home from our trip - analyzing every fish we didn’t hook up or keep hooked after they bit.  I didn’t get any joy from a Top Raider either but live chucking them.   Thanks for the report!
    • Just came back from LOTW.  Numbers were down but not bites.  I was a miserable 6 for 15 fish on. 75% of the bites came on the figure 8, I mostly tried to set back into them and they would come "unbuttoned " pretty quickly.  Next year, I will  try pulling them around or if they bite up in the corner of my figure 8, I would then pull the rod straight back trying to set it in the corner of their mouth.   Smaller bucktails got the most bites.  Cranks did pretty well too -- 7" Slammers and Crane Bait.  One friend got a 48 on a Top Raider. I had a 4 -5 large fish follow a top raider or a jackpot but none bit.  My brother got a 50" on a Mepps Musky Marabou.
