Fished rogers city for the first tike since the crash, got a few kings and an atlantic. First time eating an atlantic. Honestly i wasnt impressed. Made it side by side with a king and while it was good, i prefered the king over the Atlantic. Was interesting after hearing all the reviews about their table fair
Really? That’s amazing to me. I’d take Atlantic over king as table fare any day. To each there own though.
It wasnt really the taste per say it was the texture. Ill say is never turn it down it was still delish. Just giving edge to king. Preparation was seared on cast iron griddle with lawrys and pepper
Gotcha. I wonder if it has to do with the warm water., The last Atlantic we caught was a little on the soft side. I could see where that could turn somebody off. Spring and early season Atlantics are very firm.
If I was blindfolded I think the only way for me to distinguish would be the firmness of the meat you usually get from Atlantics. Ill eat both either way with no complaints!
Yes i would say the atlantic was firmer than the king. I like how the kings flake
I’ve only had Atlantic from cold water and I much preferred it over king. Much better texture and flavor in my opinion.
Yea everyone has their preference. I put brown trout over just about any great lakes fish and some people let them go cuz they taste like wood. To each their own
Its hard to beat a brown trout. IMHO
Steelhead for me
When do the Atlantics start showing up around Lexington?
Check the Lexington/Port Sanilac thread. Someone asked the same question. Maybe it will help.
Ha, might have been me! I’ve hooked them in the harbor last October casting from the docks (0 for 2). Once this weather clears up, will start trolling for them outside the harbor. Figure 2 to 3 miles north and south of harbor. We’ll see ! Mixed veggies spoons worked great, I’m told. They also work on steelhads. May try spin and glows and even j plugs
Thanks for the info. Name of my boat is Blind Squirrel...be happy to share any info with everyone on and off the water. Would love to figure these fish out!
