What in your opinion is the best eating fish?

Just curious to know what species of fish you target when you feel like eating fish?Either open water or hard water? I personally target flounder when the stomach is crying for fish.

Walleye on the grill.  But since they are hard to come by sunfish/crappie are my second choices.

im originally from florida and i love the mahi mahi (dolphin fish) blackened or grilled, or a good thick tuna steak cooked the same way...as for freshwater, i prefer the crappie, walleye and pike. oh, and perch too!

If you are willing to take a little extra effort in cutting around the Y bones, a nice northern out of cold water cant be beat.  They dont seem to taste as good out of warm water. A close second would have to be perch

#1 Perch #2 Crappie #3 Blue Gill
Salt Water #1 Blackfish #2 Stripped Bass #3 Flounder
Might sound strange but I put Walleye well down the list. I think its highly over rated just like the Weakfish in the salt water.
Always keep your line wet!
