I have a new "best fish".  In light of the poor fishing locally here for the past couple weeks, my vote goes for "any fish I can land and put in the frying pan" LOL.  One fish in two w/ends. Yeeesh!! :'( :'( :-/

Perch, perch and more perch.  But if you want to really know, compare prices at your local fish market.  Usually, the better it is, the more it costs.  Example, round steak vs. filet mignon, or Pabst vs. Molson.  Around here lake perch costs between $10 and $13 per pound (no I've never paid for it!).  And no it's not because they are a smaller fish, because smelt are $3 per pound.  I just deep fry them.  Nothing fancy.  They taste great.

Any of you guys smoke your fish?(NO not with ziz-zag papers) The wife just got me a smoker for my birthday and after a day of getting some nice landlocks in Maine I decided to give the smoker a try.I used some apple wood to smoke the salmon in. Man what a difference in taste! I cooked up a mixture of Salmon,scallions and scrambled eggs and thought I was in heaven. This smoker has deffinstly got my brain working overtime.

i made a smoker out of an old uprite freezer. here in milwaukee,wisconsin we have some good fishing on lake michigan for trout and salmon. to smoke a salmon whole i hang it from a hook by the tale and use apple wood. do not use mesquite it will ruin your catch. and by the way when you put a whole smoked salmon on a plate your guests will pig out and you can sit back and pat yourself on the back for a job well done.

Of the ones that I keep ice fishing, Crappie! ;) mmmmmmm good.  Best if caught through the ice too.

Of any fish, I'd have to say that Swordfish or Salmon is my favorite.

But, I also like trout, bluegills, yellow perch, walleye....

My Favorite fish to eat is sort of like asking what is my favorite beer to drink.  I may have a slight preference of one over another, but if you put it infront of me I'll take it! ;)

[My favorite fish is any fillet which will fit an oblong glass baking dish approx 8" X 20".

Take your fillets and layer the complete bottom of the glass baking dish.Season with salt/pepper.

Cover all fish with a layer of mozzarela cheese sliced or shredded.

Now  spoon a jar of spaghetti sauce over the cheese.

I add an additional layer of cheese but this is optional.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for approx 45 min.

You will really like this one. An old italian lady living near Lake Erie used to beg me for Lake Erie Sheepheads so she could make this dish as often as possible. I have tried all kinds of fish for this recipe, and it is GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
