    Default Silver Salmon for table fare. any good?

    Guys i am coming up next July 15-25th and i was thinking of a Halibut and Silver Salmon charter out of Seward. How are Silvers for table fare. I know reds are outstanding, I dont want to spend the time and money chasing them if they taste like chums or pinks. I know they can be good smoked but nothing beats salmon on the grill. I am going to hit the reds in the rivers then as well.

    Default very good

    Silvers are outstanding. Especially caught in saltwater. That time of year is usually a good time for Silvers.

    Reds have a bit stronger flavor; but not (my opinion) necessarily better, just stronger.

    Have fun and enjoy your visit.

    Really good. Beautiful fish too, and probably the most fun to catch IMO. Seward is an outstanding place to fish for silvers, you should be excited.
    Hike faster. I hear banjo music.

    Default Nasty

    kgpcr,

    They are nasty.....after you get done processing them, just drop the coho you catch off at my house so you don't have to carry them home with you.

    Have a great trip.

    I'll take a silver on the bbq over a king anyday. Never had the opportunity to try a red on the bbq.

    Humpies go back in the water, never coming home to our house. Unless I need halibut bait.

    I agree, they are not worth your time to keep. As a favor to whom ever you give them to, it's best to have them processed and vacuum bagged.

    PM me for my phone number and address for drop off. I won't charge you much.

    PS. pinks, chums and dogs all be the same bird.

    Chums and dogs are the same fish, but pinks are a different species. Pinks and humpies are the same.

    Whaaaaaat? Never had a red on the bbq? This must be how Brian felt when I said I haven't had any moose/bou/sheep meat yet after 4 years up here.

    Do you not have any reds to bbq? If so, drop me a line when you're in anchortown next time and I'll give ya some. Our favorite bbq recipe is to make a paste out of melted butter, brown sugar, dill and garlic and spread over the top.

    Try it. They are so good. I put a slab on a board you get from Fred meyers. 3-4 in a pack. You cook it on the board and it will give it a nice hickey or other flavor to the fish.

    We don't have a very big red fishery in our area so all not that easy to come by. I appreciate the offer and might take you up on it.

    thanks

    Hey, see the signature, KINGFISHERKTN!

    pre-chewed, mish-mash? Make up your mind Brian, p-c or m-m is what your young son will be eating. Am I old or young?

    I might be on the peak, but haven't started slipping down that slippery slope yet.

    Silvers are very good table fare.
