re: Best tasting Freshwater Fish
Probably have to go with coho salmon with where I live. Then king salmon. Then red salmon. Then chum salmon.

Bonus: burbot or lush is also tasty

Love tuna and swordfish



So do I but they are excluded from the OPs question.

For me the answer is good fried catfish.

But I hardly ever fish for sacalait.


Catch them in the cook fall or cool spring. Shiners, cork along the banks round stumps. We used to use cane poles and just scull skins dropping in spots. Would mop up. So much fun

Fresh Walleye is the correct answer. Top notch!

Actually white perch is a different species from White or Black Crappie, but I was going to ask the poster if his pallet was refined enough to tell one crappie species from another. I can do so with catfish, but not with crappie.

re: Best tasting Freshwater Fish
Not sure how crappie didn't make the op list. That's up there with walleye for me. As far as fishing, nothing beats large mouth bass casting. I'm not a fan of simply watching a bobber in complete silence.

Unagi is another good answer.

Smelt. We used to sit on the pier drinking beer all night while hauling up net after net full of smelt. It was a team effort. One would lower and hoist the net, another would scoop the bounty from the net with a long pole that had a can on the end of it, and another would take a scissors, snip off the head and gut them. Battered, then you had deep fried goodness. I miss smelt.

I used to love smoked chubs and ciscoes when I had access to them in the North.

re: Best tasting Freshwater Fish
Most panfish (bluegill, sunfish, crappie, et al.) are pretty good tasting fish.

If you haven't had walleye try to put it on your bucket list. Lightly breaded and panfried is truly delicious.

re: Best tasting Freshwater Fish
A friend of my ex-father-in-law used to bring him undersized catfish from an illegal slat trap. We’re talking 8 and 9 inch fish. He would de head, gut and skin them, and then fry them whole. Best fish I’ve ever tasted.

Never heard of an undersized catfish....I guess I’ve eaten many an illegal cat.
