Crappie, but I do miss those shoreline lunches of fresh fried walleye in the north country.

I will take a speckled trout from the gulf any day. We catch and eat a lot of Stripers, but it it’s not my favorite. I usually use it for family and friends fish frys, and keep the saltwater stuff for myself.

I like crappie too but it seems like they’re all 9 3/4” in Granbury. I’ve finally been able to catch a few after many of you give me instructions but no biggies yet.

Several years ago I would have said crappie until I ate walleye up in Iowa. Made me want to throw rocks at crappie.

Yep. Walleye is it for me. Even Culver’s sells Walleye fillet dinners and sandwiches when it’s in season. Best eating fish out there

Walleye or crappie for the win...and the tie! Both equally great and best eating freshwater fish hands down!

Walleye is no comparison to fresh Halibut...but unfortunately its not readily available in Texas.

As to normal deep fry, the very best of Catfish, is from BlueCats weighing about 12# to 14#. You shave the 2 back straps from the bone (not fillet them). You cut across to have what looks like small "8" or "B" shaped steaks. About 1.25 to 1.5 inches thick. After deep frying, your batter shell should be slightly crisp. But as you crack it open, the meat will flake (Oh, so Tender!!!). There is nothing better, if fried in Mrs. Tucker's & dipped in ice cold Del Monte ketchup. For some reason, the 12 to 14# pounders are the very best for this, whether from the Trinity River (below TX 21 bridge) or Lake Limestone.

I have never had walleye so I cannot comment. Crappie & bluegill are great especially from the cold water in the winter.

I had never had it until last year. I moved here to Virginia for work, been here 4 years now and the lakes I fish have walleye but not very many. I've caught 2 since I've been here, the first one I took pics and threw back because I'm just not a big fan of eating freshwater fish and was later berated by friends "you threw it back!?", the second one I took home .... it's the real deal, best tasting freshwater fish I've ever had, you could have told me it was snapper and I wouldn't have known the difference.

Crappie in the freshwater, Snook in the saltwater.


A good rule of angling philosphy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.
