Panfish.....Skin on or Off

Recommended Posts

Jim Almquist

When you keep a couple to eat what is your favorite way fillet them up for dinner ?

 

 

Don't know why but I always like to scale the fish and then fillet it up. I know it tends to curl when frying bit I always feel it has more flavor.

The best fish I ever remember eating were pan fish my uncle would give us when I was young and fried up crispy skin on with the fins! Loved um. :) Now, I'm just to lazy and filet. :(

The funny part is that I think it takes me about the same amount of time to clean but it is a lot more mess to contend with when cleaning up.

I usually fillet skinless. 

I do agree, the skin on sunfish tastes even better. I just hate to scale.

No skin. Very very rarely do I leave the skin on every so often I will. Scaling takes so much longer and is so messy.

No skin. However, I know someone who swears by the skin-on, deep-fried method. He says it allows him to get a better, tastier fillet from smaller bluegills in the 6-7" range.

      From where it is, I would guess ATT if anything.     https://www.att.com/maps/wireless-coverage.html (zoom in and enter zip code for that area.  Cook is 55723 so that's a start.  Looks like ATT has coverage.  Tmobile roams on ATT.

      Heard browns fight but nothing like steelhead. took probably 20 min to get mine in.

      I've personally spent years catching crappie with minnows.  Usually I will drop a dead stick with a minnow and jig another line with a waxie. Have similar luck on each rod. Always depends on what the fish want of course. I like to give them the most options.

      Always dreamed of getting out and exploring other great lakes. Got to fish Lake Superior a few times out of Duluth and it changes my ice fishing life!
    • bigpunfun
      Heading to the Virginia Mn area Ice fishing in a few weeks. I've fished the Duluth area most of my life but finally spreading out a bit.  Not hoping to get anyones "spot". How are ice conditions? Anywhere to stay away from safety wise? Any dead lakes that would be a waste of my time on a limited trip? Thanks yall

      Always looks like a blast with those jawjackers or auto fisherman.  Fighting those big Browns and steelhead on a short rod through a hole in the ice on light line would be fun.
