    What do you rate as your top 5 rod caught eating fish with regard to flavour v's preperation time. I would rate whiting nr1 - but the prep time (bones) for such a small fish knocks it down a bit. I have never tried rod caught bass so can't comment.

    Mine would be;

    i take it you mean taken from the North Sea
    whiting (block filleted is the best and easiest way)
    did I mention mackerel the best tasting fish in the north sea

    cod (bland) and bass must be the two most overated tasting fish you can get, you can add salmon to that as well.

    Bass, must be the way you cook it hairybeast :yes: i do try to limit my consumption though
    monkfish never caught one with the rod, but have taken em diving, superb
    Haddock can you still catch one round here ?
    Plaice must find out where i can catch some
    gurnard got one sunday but he kept grunting at me so i put him back
    Cod sometimes a bit wet, but can be cooked so many ways

    oh shit thats 6, come to think of it there are a loads more, mackerel, dabs, in fact almost anything except pollock & billet

    I would agree bass to be very over rated. My faves would be:

    Cod from the chippy
    Tuna Steak
    Tinned mackerel

    Unfortunatly my top 3 are a little thin on the ground these days.Also find bass and monks overated . Gunnets would have been up there but they are a bit fiddly to prepare and macks need to be super fresh.
    I have not caught a tinned one yet Ill have to tap Bob up as to tactics ect.

    1) Haddock - in Magpie Cafe batter, with tartre sauce
    2) Halibut - As above.
    3) Bass - Baked in salt, which draws the water out
    4) Turbot - Steamed, with a nice Hollandaise or watercress sauce
    5) Sole - As breaded goujons with a twist of lemon, or fried in butter

    dont know what it is for bass the bigger 3lb plus fish seem to have more flavour about them than the just insize ones even cooked the same way.i just do them in foil in the oven with butter and onions :hungry:
    as for plaice ive been giving these away for years, not any more they were bootiful in a fish pie the other day.

    Killer Shark
    King Size Haddock

    and Kilmarnock, I know Kilmarnock is not a fish but it is a Plaice in Scotland!
