Following up on RAW's favorite fish to catch, please list your 2 favorite fish to eat from the salt and from fresh water.

 

Me:

 

Salt

1. California halibut

2. Dorado

 

Fresh (hard to narrow it to two)

1. Striper

2. Crappie (catfish would be 3rd, if the dolt who posted this thread had allowed us 3 choices. :mad: )

Listing stripers as a freshwater fish, on this site? Criminal.

Hehehe 

They are for me out here. ;)

Although I plan to target them in the ocean soon. :)

1) Salt - Tie between blackfish (tautog for my inner native RI) and Black Sea bass....I like keeping it local

2) Fresh - walleye (competes with saltwater)

 

Note, search the web Field and Stream Bluefish burgers and you will find a rather easy recipe for Montauk Bluefish Burgers.  This will change your mind about eating blues.  It's fantastic!

Salt:

Best I've cooked that I caught = Striper (Maine)

Best a restaurant cooked that I ordered = tie between Bluefin Tuna (Ecuador) & Fugu (China)

Best I've caught that someone else cooked = Mahi Mahi (Thailand)

 

 

Fresh:

Best I've cooked that I caught = Rainbow Trout (New Hampshire)

Best a restaurant cooked that I ordered = Largemouth Bass (in China)

Best I've caught that someone else cooked = Yellow Perch (Maine)

Fresh:

Crappie

Perch

 

Salt:

Sheepshead

Speck

 

To be honest I don't really eat much fresh fish unless I'm ice fishing. Normally just a hassle to deal with cleaning and cooking most of the time. Most of the time I have access to saltwater I'm in a hotel that doesn't have a kitchen. If I do eat anything from the sea, I was on a charter and they fillet it for me and I get it cooked at a restaurant. 

 

My favorite between both would be a tie between crappie and sheepshead. Love them both very much.

Lots to choose from if you're willing to pay the price for something exotic, but from what's readily available for me to catch locally, 12-13" largemouth bass from clean freshwater and from the salt, 18-19" stripers.

Midwest?

 

NorCal. I've fished stripers in San Francisco Bay, but many years ago.

Getting back to fish them (freshwater first), finally. Will start in fresh water. :)

Where are you getting 18-19" stripers?

Black sea bass is my favorite fish hands down. Good call.  Fresh water for me is perch.

California west coast size limit is 18".  We let the bigger fish go to make babies.  18" has better texture and is a more consumer friendly package.   A meal for two and no waste.

I was thinking perch but walleye is pretty much as good with a bigger fillet.
