    Perch from Lake Erie and Sundusky Bay. As soon as the water is 68 degrees, they start biting. They taste wonderful but you need 20 of them for a good meal.
    Bluegill are also excellent.

    Salmon, the way I fix it: crispy, spicy, Cajun style.
    (come to think of it, that's how I fix every fish)

    Bluegill and crappie are tasty, but the little red eyed rock bass caught in clear cool highland rivers and streams are delicious.

    I haven't eaten rock bass in a long time now. They're good stuff.

    Brookies, browns or rainbows, panned fried and served up with sides of sauteed morels and ramps when in season.

    I like ocean perch. Can get limits of dinner plate sized ones in 15 minutes. I just don't shoot them anymore because they are such a pain to clean, and are so boney. But a lot of shore fisherman don't mind taking them off your hands.

    Big... slab... crappie...

    Better than sauger... and bigger than sunfish (bluegill, etc.) After scalin' and cleanin'... we sometimes fry 'em and eat 'em... fins and all... just pick the bones clean like buzzards.

    I like crappie, because its regularly stocked in several private lakes I fish in, and in a lake that's less then 2 miles from my home.

    I have to say bluegill, easy to catch, quick to prepare, they are plentiful here, I use them as catfish bait as well.

    I was raised on Bluegill, leave the bones in and season with salt, pepper, and flour. Pan fry, then roll the meat down from the spine to clear the bones. Have many dipping sauces and hot sauce on hand. A cold beer never hurts.

    I second the perch. I live on Lake Erie and the Perch are great. We have many Perch Fests from the Summer to the Fall, great prices and no mess. Hard to beat.

    Freshwater: crappie, bluegill and catfish.
    Saltwater: snook, speckeled trout, and red drum.
    Why? Impeccable taste!

    I'm fortunate to live in an area where a short drive west can put one in a trout stream and a short drive east is the Chesapeake bay. Not long ago we hit a brackish creek where croaker, spot, taylor bluefish, puppy drum and speckled sea trout can be caught.

    Lake trout.....you can't go wrong with lake trout. it's good pretty much any way you want to cook it, delicious with rice, potatoes, bannock, whatever.

    Or...and this is a more difficult one, but arctic cod. We went fishing for cod through the sea ice this one time when I was kid. rolled the fillets in, if memory serves, and I'm going back 16 years here, so I could be wrong, but I think we used bannock dough, or possibly bannock mix without water added (way easier than bringing all the ingredients, incidentally. we just mixed up flour, baking powder, milk powder and shortening and tossed it in a container. added water at the campsite), and panfried it. I can tell you it was incredibly tasty. Granted, fish you caught yourself served in a canvas tent is probably always going to be delicious, but even so.

    Default Bass-O-Matic for terrific bass, and so easy! Try other pan fish as well!

    Was watching the SNL40 show recorded from Sunday night and thought about your comment about fish "the meat is just too mushy". Perhaps you need to read the instructions more carefully that came with your "Bass-o-Matic":

    Not exactly related, but anyone try carp/ goldfish or Koi? Goldfish are damn hardy and make for a nice decrotive addition to a pond/ fountain. Careful with and natural ponds or ponds with stream or any outlet to public waterways. Round here, and I think all of US, could be looking at big fine for introducing an invasive species.

    I only keep cichlids since Goldfish are not for indoor tanks, well normal sized ones. Doubt any one would be ok with my poaching a koi/goldfish to try how they taste either.
