I didn't know if this was considered off topic or not so I'm posting here.
I've been fishing since I was young. Like most here.
And I usually eat what I catch. Which usually means I only eat cat and trout. Because my understanding was that these were the best eating.
Now since I've been in Montana. I have heard a few other things.
I've heard the best eating is Walleye, even better than trout but another old timer told me sturgeon were the best.

And when I cook fish it's either season wrap in foil and throw on the grill for about 16 minutes altogether.
Or fry in bacon grease with some red onion and a few peppers.(bell and jalapeño)

So...I would like to hear, in your opinion what is your favorite fish to eat
And your favorite way to cook them.

And just in case you're wondering.
Yes I'm up at 1am thinking about food cuz my big ass is hungry lol
Now let's hear it!

Sturgeon is ok. It's a fattier version of halibut. Catfish have their moments. Sometimes they have that muddy taste to them that I can't stand. Trout can be very delicious to eh, depending on the conditions they were caught in (cold stream or stockers).

I too have heard walleye are the best eating. They only live in very clean waters and I've been told there is a sweetness to their flesh.

I grew up on panfish, be it salt water perch or fresh water sunfish, those are the best. A close second are sand dabs. The panfish are lightly salted with some diced ginger then fried. The dabs: egg dipped then coated with cornstarch/black pepper blend. Fried in a shallow vat of peanut oil. Drizzle melted butter and lemon, with some capers. Getting hungry...

Anything fried in bacon fat is good.

Fresh water:
1.  I like wild caught trout grilled over coals or mesquite wood.
2.  Pan fish fillets fried, I don't get to use the bacon grease.
3.  Catfish and Bass grilled over coals or Red Oak

I have this little gizmo for grilling on my BBQ's

I hear a lot of things about Carp.
I hear they're bad to eat, will possibly make you sick.
But if you cure fillets in milk for 24 hrs they come out alright.

My nuhf-kum(Cree Word) makes Salmon head stew with Bannock bread.
I had never had it till last year but it is amazing especially with bannock.
Kinda funny when you open the pot up and see salmon heads looking at you lol

I'm not a massive fish eater but zander (our European equivalent of walleye) are supposed to taste delicious as are perch.

The Polish have carp for their Christmas dinner

Fresh caught Bluegill are the best!  7 to 9 inch fish are the best eating, but they HAVE to be filleted!  I can't stand getting bones in my mouth with a nice bite of fish.  Pan fried Bluegills are great with any prepared potatoes, rice or noodles.  They have nice flakey white meat for fish tacos. Dust with flour and salt and pepper and fry in some peanut oil.  OMG!  I want some NOW!

I am a catfish and bluegill man. Like them fried or in a patty with a base of butter crackers. Not fan of trout unless it is salted or pickled. Got Asian carp in my area been trying to catch some of them heard they taste good. all time favorite is catfish cooked anyway like wild catfish cannot stand farm raised.
