For, I'm Eric Granstrom. I started thinking after my last report, referencing Marion falling in love with walleye. Have you ever had BAD walleye? For that matter, what's your favorite fish to eat? I remember the first time I caught a walleye and thought, "THIS is supposed to taste good?!" And for my money, walleye is about the best tasting, white meat, fresh water fish you can find. Now, I happen to LOVE the taste of sockeye salmon and it's lesser-flavorful, land-locked cousin, the kokanee. I know a lot of people don't care for salmon because it's "fishy tasting." And I'll agree, the more good-for-you Omega-filled fat on a salmon, the more "fishy" tasting they become. A spring chinook salmon is hard to pass up. It's much less "fishy" tasting than a sockeye or kokanee. A summer-run or fall chinook tend to be a little "fishier" tasting, especially the higher in the river system you catch them. If you catch a coho or chinook further down towards the mouth of the Columbia or off the Washington Coast that are nice and bright, break out the butta! In reality, it's all about how you prepare them and cook them. Now I'm hungry! Until next time, Good Fishing!
