Never "dipped", but remember eating them as a kid when supplied by fishermen who had gone up to Wisconsin. We were told to eat 'em bones and all.

I also miss lake perch and fish (NOT crab) boils. Unheard of around here.

Yes, VERY cold at times - that's what the beer is for..

And with the wide availability of turkey friers these days, you can clean and cook the little suckers straight out of the water. Mmmmm.....

Has anyone ever been noodling? It's where you catch catfish with your hands by sticking them in holes in the bank underwater. I know of some people who do this & have caught some huge catfish this way. I'm not brave enough to try it. I'm afraid I'd grab a water moccasin or something.

I know what noodling is, and there have been a number of drowning deaths each year because of it. Big catfish are very very strong, and you are in their element!

Noodling is not even legal in some states because of the danger.

Thanks chocolatechef! The people I know of who do this are from the mid west. They also catch rattle snakes to sale. I personally think they are NUTS(on both counts)!!! I don't know if noodiling is legal here in SC or not, but either way, you'll never catch me doing it! Even the small catfish are strong & they fight hard when you catch them. I can only imagine how strong the big guys are.

Never been, but aware of the practice. I have this feer of a large snapping turtle being in there instead of a catfish.....

It's that cold, nutrient rich, pure water that makes the flesh so orange and flavorful. I like my walleye, but I'd eat fresh brook trout over a good steak any day of the week.

I agree, I love fresh trout (char) from cold water as well as walleye.

As far as ocean fish goes, halibut is hard to beat.

Yes, but it's good to be reminded of the folks that were here in the beginning. I sometimes wonder what happened to all of them.

I know Linda (Wasabi) left after her husband died. John and Sushi moved to other forums, GB has dropped back in once or twice. Others............

Walleye from Lake of the Woods. I will eat salmon, haddock, cod, lake trout, and sole, but my favourite is Walleye.

It always comes back to walleyes, us that have fished.

I used to fish the Winnipeg River so long ago and fresh caught northern pike fried over a camp fire can't be beat, as well. I miss those days.

For me now, it's cod fish and chips, halibut when I'm in luck.

My favorite fish is fried haddock.

The kind you find in a corner fish market or family restaurant on Friday night. A piece big enough to hang off both ends of the platter with extra crispy hand cut fries and a little side dish or paper cup of cabbage salad.

I am with you on that. I buy the whole filet of Haddock when I go shopping. But I cut it up into individual pieces. I can usually eat two big size pieces from the middle of the filet. I do the typical three dish of breading. Flour, egg, then the flavored breadcrumbs. Let it sit for a while, then into about a half inch of hot fat. YUM, YUM! No fries though. I do not like them anymore. I got my fill of them back in the sixties when my first husband worked in the restaurant downstairs. He used to send up a huge serving tray full of them every night for the kids.

Oh, my. You need to go south. Grouper, wahoo, even mutton snapper is every bit as good, if not better. I may be prejudiced, as I've never had fresh halibut, only frozen, but I have had fresh of those others, and I've found nothing that beats them.

Walleyed pike is excellent! I can get it right here in the restaurant 4 blocks from the house. It's the only place I've found it west of Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Love lion fish too - a true delicacy. Wish more would discover it to help curb the infestation in the Caribbean.

Don't forget hogfish. I'd put it up against just about any other mild, white, flaky fish.

another favorite is lox.Toasted egg bagel,cream cheese,lox,Dijon mustard,slice tomato,slice red onion,capers.YUMMY!
