My favorite are perch, deep fried, add some paprika and dont forget to squeeze that lemon overtop. 10 - 12 inch is perfect for my liking.

second to that is Signor Whitey !! 3 - 4 lb range


Enjoy your feed & be sure to post !!

Whatever I catch myself. Better than store bought. Id say perch, pike and lakers are my favourite. Ling is right up there too!

Dave

Out of all of the replies, I can't believe yours is the only one that mentions Ling...
Had it the first time last year, cubed it, boiled in salty water, dipped in melted butter, delicious!

I've seen a few rock bass posts and have heard they're delicious. I'll have to give them a go some time.

Anyone find some fish taste better when caught through the ice? Is it just me or do pike taste better when they come from below the ice?

agree there nothing wrong with rock bass, or ling.

Lets not forget silver bass (pan fried) and catfish (smoked). I will eat these before pike.

One time I kept about a dozen rock bass in early May from the river. Should have seen the looks I got. People thought I was keeping Small Mouths.

Fishnhunt, steelhead is our family favorite! Can you share that recipe? It looks awesome. I'll trade you recipe for recipe? We have a really good tasty one also if you're interested.

In order:

1) steelhead, any size under 8lbs
2) Lakers, 2-3lbs
3) splake 16-24"
4) brookies, 15-18"
5) grouper
6) cod

Maybe I lack the sophisticated pallets of our other LSO members....but honestly if its fried I really cant tell the difference between "white fleshed fish". pike, crappie, perch, bass, walleye. Its all the same to me. Even side by side, eating perch and bass the only give away for the bass is how much thicker the fillets are. The good thing about this "unrefined" pallet of mine is I really don't care what species it is. If theres enough for a feed you best start warmin the oil. Actually wait. there is one I can think of. CATFISH. if you have never had catfish you are missing out. covered in Cajun seasoning pan fried? Lordy I do believe I am getting the vapours (swoons like southern belle).

Boy, oh boy, this topic makes me sooo hungry!
I agree that sometimes it hard to tell the difference between some species of fish depending on how your prepare them.

Kudos to the white bass mentioned above!!

For the size of fish they filet up amazing - nice and tall fish - good filets and super white and tasty fish.

I live on lake erie and can get them right in my backyard when theyre running - pretty spectacular even, when it's calm and they push the bait fish right close to shore.....hundreds of them surfacing, minnows jumping out of the water being chased.

Literally just toss a spinner bait, bite every time when that happens.

lol

But I digress - very tasty fish! I've even say for the work fileting them etc I'd take them over perch half the time about double the filet meat for the same length fish I'd guess

Nobody has mentioned pickerel cheeks!!! mmmmmmmmmmmm
