Any fish in the ocean that won't kill me. Catch and release. Bass too.

 

I'll eat any fish that is fished properly and renewable. I favor tuna, salmon, clams, lobster, tilapia, skrimps!

i fish for pan fish more than anything.  although i will fish for just about any type of fish that we have around here.  it is all freshwater fishing here as i am not very close to any saltwater.

this conversation is making me miss the ocean! I hate hot weather but I have lived in Florida on several occasions and miss the fishing.

Did someone say fishing?....

Hell yea, we live on the stuff., mostly salmon. But rainbow trout, dolly varden, and arctic char are also fair game. Once we get a good cold snap, there will be a lot of ice fishing going on. But the ice is still a little thin IMO at this present time.

locally there are a few good places where there are steelhead, coho, and king salmon.  there are three good runs a year coming in from lake michigan.  its a blast catching them out of the rivers and creeks.

I admittedly do not have much knowledge of the area around the great lakes, but I didn't know they had King salmon back there.

I do know however, that the world record king salmon was caught in the Kenai River within an hours drive from my house.

Huge fisherman. Love to Spear Fish & Fly Fish. During the summer months it's strictly spearfishing. The only true form of sustainable fishing as I shoot exactly what I choose to shoot. There is no by catch or waste.

Nice looking fish Skunk, I've never been spearfishing. The waters around where I live are to cold and treacherous. Fly fishing is the way it's done around here for the most part. That is unless your out in salt water looking for the big guys.

Our waters are pretty cold as well, a 8mm full suit is nessisary for spending any amouth of time in the water. Lots I log chocked water ways that hold some lovely fish. We also travel a lot and take the spearing on the road!

have you ever heard of pickling pike(as they are kind of bony)?  once i was talking with my grandpa and he said it was excellent and seeing the picture of that pike made me think about it.

Juthro, i like to fly fish for gills with a floating fly.  watching them hit the surface gives me a rush.  walleyes are a lot of fun also whether it be on lake erie or in the river.

some from lake erie...

I love fishing but in the last few years have not done much of it. Last I went was deep sea Ling Cod fishing and man it is a workout hauling them up from 300 ft down lol. I miss the lazy Ohio rivers back home and the delicious catfish we used to haul out of them. Out here it is mostly Trout and salmon in the rivers depending on what time of year you go. I hear there is bass and catfish here too but damned if I have ever caught any. Crappie are fun if you go to the right place.

 

I grew up down the road from a limestone quarry that was the best damn fishing hole I have ever seen. Everything in it was abnormally large and the fish were there as soon as you throw a line in. Out here the rivers move along so fast it is hard to fish from the bank and is a whole different style of fishing. Lots of fun though and I need to plan an outing soon. Seems like the trout fishing takes off as soon as the weather goes to hell lol.

I have, but have not tried it. It works very well on other boney fish though, such as sardines, and herring. I know that the addition of some lemon juice in the jar while pressure canning salmon makes the pin bones dissolve.

We do actually have northern pike around here in a few lakes, but they are considered an invasive species and there has been a lot of effort to eradicate them.

a while back a friend of mine gave me some large pieces of a pike fillet and for some reason i did not find a bone in them. i know that he did not remove the y bones, so i am not sure what to think about y bones.

I know there is a trick to filleting them, but I haven't played with them much so I cant say that I know it.

I found this after a quick search on the 'net http://1source.bassp...rel-infographic
