----------------ed, salmon aren't bad at all, sometimes i blacken them ( with blackening seasoning) on a cast iron pot that i have in butter very high heat and they don't even smell fishy actually pretty good ------------- i should have that fish pickle recipe for you tommorow it's also very good for pike and muskie you can actually eat the bonesEd Michrina said:Keep the ones just legal or larger. they are actually good. I like a non fishey fish so I like Walleye and perch more. By no means is it as bad as salmon. My buddy likes SM bass more or as much as walleye? Give it a try. the colder the water the better. PS stay away from the large mouth.
yes, they're like swordfish, real firm...the colder the water the better...river fish in other words.wcalcaterra said:A buddy and I have been debating eating smallies, are they any good?
I figured this is the best palce to ask it would be noce to have another fish to eat.
Are they in season right now?
I have heard that from several sources...surprizing!!! I just may have to give one a try.bocephus said:Try eating rock bass, they are much better.
Michigander1 said:Folks that say no just dont want you keeping them and eating them.Fact is they are very good eating,Mich
The reason you do not see them in restaurants or seafood stores is that they are number one, not popular as table fare. 2. The other 'table fare' fish are more commonly caught in huge schools (which means there are tons) and in big waters (which means easier to operate a commercial outfit profitably).NEMichsportsman said:There is a reason why you don't see them on the menu at any restaurants, or for sale at seafood stores!
Good luck be sure to use a lot of batter, and wash it down with copious amounts of beer. Blatz will kill the taste most effectively!!!
