I can walk 50' out my back door and catch LMB, peacock bass, blue gill and catfish. Would I eat them? Not a chance! Daddy Sugar and the sod farms have made sure of that.

We always did "catch and release" with bass. I have to say, the only fresh water fish we'd eat were walleye and lake trout. Everything else catch and release, move the boat. Northern (snake) was eaten as pickled fish--fake pickled herring, but not often. Bullheads, perch, burbots, eelpout, bass, and catfish (and snapping turtles) were all catch and release fish. The sooner we could get them off the hook, the better. Eelpout and burbot were the worst. Although Musky was also popular, we never went musky fishing.

I don't like freshwater fish.
But there is one i do like pretty good. Crappie or Specs as they are called in Florida.
Pan fish with a very white non fishy tasting flesh.

I grew up with perch, sunfish, trout and smelt in Michigan. All are good eating
