Default Fish taste test

I taste tested 5 species of fish today for lunch. I had spotted bass, bluegill, crappie, catfish, and yellow bass. Below is the list of the flavors and textures. I will rank them also.

1. Spotted Bass from cool water-Tasted as mild as crappie but firmer
2. Crappie- tasted very mild and melt in your mouth flavor but mushier that spotted bass
3. Bluegill- Mild with a almost nutty flavor
4.Catfish- Mushy texture with a watery flavor
5. Yellow Bass- firm and fishier than crappie

I can't really rank as I just love fish....but spotted bass are great.....I like them better than crappie but I don't want to give up any for the other....LOL.

I like to make a habit of eating nothing but 20+" Smallmouth Bass and 24+" Brown Trout.

In all seriousness:
1- Walleye
2 - Bass
3 - Trout
4 - Crappie (only above white bass because they're easier to fillet)
5 - White Bass/Striper/Hybrid

I can put you on some gar during the summer months. I thought about trying gar balls sometimes but the way those things stink, I am afraid to eat them.

I cant say ive ever actually caught a gar....thumped plenty of them with my bow, snagged a few below old hickory, but never caught one.
gar head would make a cool skull mount though, all them teeth!

It is a blast fishing for them. It's one of those things that the hotter the better with the weather. I have a spot here in murfreesboro on the stones that you can hook into one on every cast. They put up a heck of a fight and can jump like a smallmouth. My best was 58" and it put on a show. I did it once in my kayak but almost had the fish jump into the yak with me, last time I did that.

There is a muddy trail below the boy gar when in shallow water.

If anyone wants to load the boat with gar just fish the mouth of White's creek. It is only a few yards up from Briley Pkwy. bridge and Ford Glass.

Jimmy, I think you will eat any fish that swims.
