    Fresh trout from a cold alpine lake, grilled over a campfire on a stick, 20 miles from the nearest road, under a huge star-filled sky.

    Especially tasty if you're out of food because of, ummm, miscalculations.....:rolleyes: :mad:

    Canned shellfish are an abomination.

    Red wine + chocolate + shellfish + blue cheese + licorice = vivid dreams

    For a meal, cedar or alder planked sockeye. For a snack, smoked salmon.

    :rofl: that combo sounds like a good way to blow a hole right through your mattress, carpet, floorboards, right down to the foundation of your house.

    Of our local fish it would be hard to beat a fresh ling cod fillet.

    For smoked fish kokanee are the best of all our NW salmonids.

    An Alpine Lake brook trout chilled over night in a snow bank and fried in butter would be hard to beat as a outdoor breakfast.

    For a summer barbeque it would be toss up between a fresh resident coho or sockeye. Fresh sockeye has the edge on taste but the coho are available more consistently.

    Daryle -
    I had heard that wolf eel was quite good but since all of Puget Sound is closed to the taken of them and set lines are illegal I'm assuming your "line" was a troll and I don't expect to try it.

    A fun topic and can't wait until the first of May for my first ling cod feast of the year - pan fried ling (dipped in egg and rolled in Ritz cracker crumbs, boiled little red potatoes, steamed aspragus, freshw french bread and a glass of your favorite white wine - now that is eating!

    #1. Grilled Swordfish steaks
    #2. Halibut steaks
    #3. Alaskan Sockeye

    That's about it, other than canned albacore packed in spring-water.

    Mingo, although my experience is not as you describe, I defer to your mastery of matters of stool, BS and liquid flatulance (aka "swamp ass":eek: bawling: :eek: ). I have revised the equation:

    Shellfish+licorice+red wine+blue cheese+chocolate+vicodin+immodium= really vivid dreams;)

    It's an incidental catch in SE Alaska when the seine gets to close to the beach, now I'm waiting for all the bricks coming at my head. LOL, Hey BDD on this board will back me up.

    I did some butt cheeks in a butter sauce tonight , can't beat it.

    No question for me, a high lake Brook Trout. Seasoning and butter optional.
