    Default Good eatin' fish besides salmon?

    Is it all over for you when the salmon season is over? For those of you wanting to stock your freezers in the late fall/early winter, what do you pursue?

    Outside of stocked rainbows and landlocked salmon, of course.

    you can also look for pike and greyling. There are burbot around too.
    The one thing about greyling is they don't keep well. I like to cook them on the spot shortly after they are caught.
    I am not sure about catching burbot in the summertime. I know it can be done but people usually don't target them.

    We pick up Kings year-round near Juneau. Most deer hunts come home with a few salmon...

    Having said that, the question was: besides salmon, what is targeted in the late fall & winter?

    Here's my list:
    Halibut
    Crab
    Shrimp
    Deer
    Moose
    Sablefish
    Coho Salmon
    King Salmon

    Default rockfish

    Best eating fish is rockfish from my perspective.

    Default Winter fish

    In the winter I like to eat Lake Trout (char) and Pike on occasion. Both seem to freeze well.
    Hike faster. I hear banjo music.

    Default Burbot

    I like the burbot. Once you learn the honey holes it's just a matter of watching your lines. They are great tablefare. I boil mine and dip chunks into a spiced butter sauce.

    Additional votes for halibut, rockfish and venison. A few shrimp on a skewer wouldn't be 1/2 bad.

    I agree completely. They're my favorite.

    Then, in order:
    *Burbot (caught during winter through the ice)
    *Ling cod
    *Catfish (I sure wish we could catch them here!)

    I'd have to agree with those in favor of the rockfish. I am currently undecided which I like most between the rockfish and halibut.

    Of course we aren't all as lucky as CCC, but if I could I'd be loading up on crab to compliment the shrimp.
