    You put greenling on there but not sablefish? Shame.



    In my experience, greenling is about as firm as a bowl of overcooked oatmeal. My vote is for feeder king salmon with sablefish a close second.

    Lingcod

    In that order.

    Isn't a Sablefish a type of Cod? I'm not an avid saltwater fishermen so excuse me for my ignorance.

    It's not an ignorant question, as sablefish is frequently called by the misnomer "black cod". But, it is in an entirely different family from cod - in fact, the sablefish is one of only two species in it's family.

    It's really tough to beat some blackened yellow eye. (fresh) So many good choices.

    Yellow Eye!
    Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.

    I'm actually quite surprised halibut has so many votes. To me it is as bland of a fish as you can get in the ocean. Now, it is quite versatile and you can cook it a 1000 ways. But for actual taste, there is much better table fare IMHO.

    One of the halibut votes was mine for its versatility and because we lower 48'ers love it. However, I do enjoy the rockfish - Yelloweye, Coppers, Blues/Blacks, Quillbacks....all good eating. My issue is this- One annual AK trip with the need to maximize the value of it.

    So it's Silvers (6 a day in SE) and Halibut for quantity and rockfish for tasty treats.

    A non-res harvest of Yelloweye is ONE (and in 15 years...1 is all I've harvested) and two Lingcod which are both slot fish and pelagics have a little more liberal limits. Still, I mostly fish land based with the occasional trip on the salt so that pretty much is how the chips fall for me.

    Looks like Rock Sole is on the menu this year. I've caught plenty and tossed them all back...but not next month!

    The P-Cod is okay fresh but doesn't keep frozen well, IMO. Gets a dirty flavor over a few months, to me. Spiny Dogfish is on my list for something new this trip. We'll see after eating one if I want to pursue any to take home.
