    Sid the ice was still over 4 ft, took every bit of our broken auger to get through it. We travelled about 20miles out to find them the first day, only to come back and slam them 3 football fields outside of town here. Funny...what an awesome weekend!

    Fish On!

    I've heard them compared to halibut, but have not ate one myself. Hoping to one day, though!

    Good guess, a little more fishy. Good taste.

    I disagree - I would say sweeter than halibut and not "fishy" at all. Excellent table fare IMHO - best tasting fresh water fish species in alaska bar none.

    I thought they were pretty good. A lot like halibut, nice white flesh. The only odd thing I found was the meat structure is "different" more circular flaking I recall.

    Very cool, thanks for sharing! I've yet to make it there, but I'm still hopeful it'll happen this season.

    Thanks for sharing the pics. Brings back some good memories. That's how I spent my first day in Kotz back in 2004 thanks to some cool locals that took me out. We cubed them, battered, and fried them at the fire dept. Great tasting fish as mentioned. Especially for someone who had flown 4,400 miles. I'm eager to taste one on the banks of the Upper Youknowwhat. That trip is years past due.
