I tried to smoke a fish once - but couldn't keep it lit. (Sorry - that joke was just way too obvious to pass up ....)

My experience has been that if you can eat it - you can smoke it. Perhaps with the exception of catfish - especially wild catfish, you really need to fry or "blacken" that to counteract the inherent muddy flavor.

Some of my favorites when we lived in Florida were barracuda, shark, pompano, swordfish, and red snapper.

My old man caught a 48" 70 pound striped bass off of Martha's Vineyard some dozen years ago or so. Took an hour and a half to get it in the boat! Was with a commercial fisherman, who sold it for a buck a pound!

All that, and the actual purpose of the trip wasn't the fishing!

Smoked Black Cod

The absolute best smoked fish I have ever tasted was smoked black cod - it is expensive but it was even better than chocolate (and I am a chocoholic). If you can get your hands on it - you will never be the same again
