    Haddock for me :yes:

    Like tuna and swordfish too

    Hate salmon and trout :vomit: they always taste muddy to me !!

    tried halibut once and found it very nice too

    I find bass way over rated and cod very bland :whatever:

    1 Bass
    2 cod
    3 macky
    4 plaice
    5 dabs

    Bass is a lovely tasting fish,just got to be cooked right !!.
    Rub a decent butter into the fish,season with coarse sea salt & quality black pepper,put under a hot grill when its golden brwn & the flesh turns white its done !!,enoy with some decent fresh custy bread & butter(my fav way)or with some new potatoes & a few fresh peas.
    Giv it a try u won't be dissapointed.

    Mackerel , but it has to be fresh caught that day either home smoked or bbq'd

    Bass, pan fried with sea salt and cracked black pepper, skin crispy.

    Skate (Thornback) , I rarely take one I catch but I do enjoy the odd skate wing in beer batter with a slice of lemon and some homemade chunky maris piper chips.

    Dab, I love dab fillets grilled or in a fish pie.

    Cod roe, love them kelks. Boiled , cooled then pan fried and served between two slices of bread and butter. (closely matched by a nice bit of pouting :wink:)

    Bass
    Mackerel
    Haddock
    Ling
    Cod.

    Positiveley in that order, although Haddock seem to be a bit thin on the ground.

    I had a fresh Pollack of about 6 lb pan fried when last down in Atlantic coast Cornwall, 5 hrs from sea to plate, it was delicious.

    I had a fresh Pollack of about 6 lb pan fried when last fishing at Hartlepool, again about 5 hrs from sea to plate, it tasted like old boots.

    Cant work out why the same species same size, same freshness should be so different.

    Roger.

    Does anyone still eat dogfish.
    I remember it used to be sold in Leeds fish market as Rock Salmon.
    Never had it before but quite curious to try it out.

    Has anyone ever tried it?

    I usually have a bit of dogfish when on Anglesey, as long as you skin it straight away to stop the flesh being tainted with an amonia like taste it is not unlike scampi when rolled in egg and then bread crumbs and quickly deep fried :)

    What's the best way to dispatch them if you want one for the table?
    I once had a bad experience trying to knock one on the head as they don't seem to be like most fish that only take a good single knock to the head to dispatch.
    After a few good Knocks to the head with a heavy priest this thing was none the worse for the experience; in the end I gave up, returned it to water and it just swam off seeming totally none the worse. I vowed never again.
    The thing that was upsetting to me was that every time I lifted the priest above it's head, it seemed to wince and close it's eyes in readiness for the blow.
