A big old chunk of striped bass hot off the grill - OR - a couple of pan-sized brook trout caught earlier that day.

I like fresh broiled or grilled salmon, and it's hard to beat a perch fry.  Don't have Walleye up here in Maine so I have no voice in their flavor.  I did have Walleye in Michigan, at a restaurant so it doesn't count.  A fish fry in Michigan included frog legs, walleye and something else.  Unusual fare in Maine.

You can never beat a good perch fry.  If I had my choice thats what I would take every time.  Crappie are another good fish.  Actually any pan fish is preferred over the others.

for some reason it sounds strange to hear people say Northerns, how do you cook them?What do they taste like? I live in Ma, no one eats them. My fav fish would be a brookie in tin foil, with mushrooms, and lots of butter!

Walleye is without a doubt the bect eating fish that swims. However, try this as a salad with your fish dinner...

Take a couple hands full of Perch filets and boil them in seasoned water until they are just done. Then cool the filets and crumble them over a nice blend of field greens, now put a couple spoons of your favorite cocktail sauce on the top. Mmmmmmm, makes for a great salad.

Cocktail sauce: Ketchup, course horseradish, Fine chopped Green Bell Pepper, salt, pepper. Mix and let sit for a few hours.

#1  Fresh 1 1/2 lb. walleye, salt and pepper for seasoning, thrown into a hot iron skillet full of melted butter.  Yum ;D

#2  Fresh salmon fillet seasoned with salt and pepper, coated with olive oil.  Throw this on a hot BBQ.  Oooh man...a knockout. ;)

I always thought that trout on the grill was the best.  Then I had Halibut olympia.   :P hold on my mouth is watering just thinking of this.  Catfish deep fried is also taste.  The best fish of all would have to be one that you caught.  A sweet reward.  Pike is great if you learn how to get the y bones out.  Easy to do. :'(   ;D

I feel sorry for those of you that don't have an ocean next to you to fish.The best eating fish definatly come out of the salt.Smelts,grouper,red snapper,flounder,haddock,cod,mako,bluefin tuna steaks,maui maui,and the list goes on.You landlocked fisherman can have your eyes,pike and perch but give me a nice piece of haddock fried,baked or broiled anyday.And for an appetizer scallops wrapped in bacon.

I love a variety of fish. Crappie, perch, walleye. Red snapper, halibut, sheepshead, northern pike, sunfish, bass.... Anything caught fresh and prepared and seasoned correctly.

Give me one, two or more species on the same plate (a mixed grill if you will).

Smoked, fried, pickled, baked, poached, grilled...

I don't care if it is saltwater or freshwater. I want it as soon after it is caught as possible. Mmmm mmmm
