    I am going to start another poll. This one is a little harder than the "best fighter" thread. But lets give it a try.

    The question: What is your favorite tasting freshwater fish? For me, it is a very tough question, because some fish taste better depending on how they are cooked. Anyway, let me give you an example of how I would like this thread to go, but then again, you guys/girls can do what you want.

    Here goes:

    Trout: Filleted, floured and sauted in butter with onion. Yummy!
    Catfish: Deep-fryed in oil. Served with tarter sauce!!!
    Bluegill: Also deep-fryed, with cocktail sauce and lemmons.
    Striper: Marinated, then grilled. Oh boy!
    Perch: Almost anyway.....(Too bad I can't find them in TN!)
    Walleye/sauger: Baked with bread crumbs..
    Salmon: Grilled, baked, or even better yet, over an open fire....
    Gar: Battered and fried, taste like shrimp. Oh yeah!

    I told you this was tough. My vote goes to bluegill. What is yours?

    Salmon and trout are good but walleye is by far the best, especially fresh from the lake.

    Sturgeon is the best eating fresh water fish that there is. Baked, grilled or smoked, it's hard to beat.

    Where can I vote for Carp?;)

    Really, down here you can't beat crappie. From what I hear though, that Walleye is something else too.
