What's the deal with fallfish

Recommended Posts

A.K.A. River chub................ are they any good eating? I catch a crap load in the river behing my house but just throw them back. I'd hate to be throwing them back if they're good for throwing on the grill.

I dont eat them but people around here do. I was told they clean the fish and then cook them in the oven whole with onions, potatos, carrots and garlic. I catch the things all the time on lures.

Yeah. The ones I catch look just like that but with red-ish fins. They're either fall fish or creek chub, members of the carp/minnow family. I guess they get pretty big. Funny thing though, I went to the river yesterday for an hour and caught six fish one of which was a yellow perch. I didn't think there were yellow perch down there.

If you really want a grilling treat, cut that thing up and go catfishing with it.

Leave it whole and live if you have flathead catfish around you. Flatheads actually taste better when they are bigger.

Blue cats will eat them whole if they are big enough, but they tend to taste better at 10# or less (they still sold a couple of 300+# blues at the fish markets in Missouri during the civil war).

Channels love them cut up, but eating one over 3# isn't advised by me.

I have been told that the best way to prepare them is:

Preheat your oven to 350

Place two fillets skin side down on a piece of hickory wood.

Cover with onions, peppers and your favorite seasoning.

Let it bake for 25 minutes

Remove from oven, take fish off the wood and throw in the trash

Eat the wood and enjoy.

;D

That was funny but up where i fish a lot of people clean them and cut out any gross spots and then fry them
