A good run is better than a bad stand!

Can you compare it to anything in the salt? Better than fresh bluefish, which I think is OK if very fresh? As good as striper in your mind?

Sweet, firm a little like flounder. .very mild...unlike those toothy varmints that taste like yesterday's dirty sock smells.

Most of the table-fare from freshwater, with the exception of trout and salmon, are all what I would consider "flakey white meat" fish.
Crappie, perch (white and yellow), heck even sunfish are quite tasty.

Although they are edible, bass, pickerel and pike are not as "desirable", but it depends on who you ask.

If you are fishing with "kids" (meaning children) than you should also consider trying to jig for "panfish", as crappie, perch and sunnies can usually all be found in the same general areas.

Good Luck!

I am a legend in my own mind!

Both yellow perch & crappie are bony - meat is very sweet IMHO. I use to flour & cornmeal & fry them in a skillet. Eat quickly - pull out the skeleton …. enjoy.
