Looking through fishing magazines i always notice guys who fish fresh water mostly release their catch as opposed to salt water fisherman who almost always never release that prized size specimen. But having said that i have released my fair share of salt water fish and so have many a fisherman here and folks you know.

Is there a huge taste difference between the two?b_r_a_a_i

You cannot compare fresh water fish  to salt water fish.

Salt water fish will always have a better taste - next time when you catch a shad

Prepare it right there & then on the beach with a skottelskaar with only salt water as ingredient nothing else! You will leak your fingers afterwards can’t do that with fresh water fish

by a mile the saltwater species will out taste the freshwater counterparts.

all fish originated from the oceans, those who ended up upstream and in landlocked lakes need salt for taste lots of it!:dude:

Thought its a question on what saltwater fish tastes better.

Using the right method, freshwater fish can be pallatable, but will not beat saltwater fish. No comparison between salt and freshwater fish.

Its like asking who is the darkest, oom Kerneels or Uncle Sipho? Using the right method, oom Kerneels can become darker but will not beat uncle Sipho.

Talapia can be great, as can smallmouth bass and trout, but doesn't beat a saltwater fish

See vis sal waarskynlik altyd beter smaak as varswater vis, veral omdat ons varswater so erg besoedel is. Ek vang albei, en het al beide opgevreet.

Deesdae gooi ek omtrent alles terug, sal miskien 'n shad of twee rook maar dis dit. Ons vang nie vir kos nie, ons vang net vir die plesier.

Saltwater normally tastes the best but I have a soft spot for bass from the farm dam. They have a slight musky taste/smell which reminds me of that beautiful aroma around a small isolated dam as the sun goes down on a dead calm evening.

I've heard trout taste lekker but have yet to taste it. Salt water fish is the way to go. Nice tasting fish. Caught some nice carp last year. Bleieve me when i say i spiced it up to the fullest that i know how to. Just could not get that mud taste out.

Fish literally tasted like mud. Now it's a strickly catch and release if i fish for carp. No matter what size. ::S

Trout is very nice! A whole trout stuffed with shrimp garlic, mushrooms and some mozarella cheeshe and baked in oven is king!!

One can not compare saltwater and fresh water fish but each has a unique taste. I will never eat carp that is not deapfried but as ugly as they might look barble actualy makes for some very good and tasty fillets!

So i cut a view nice barble fillets and fried them in a pan with some garlic butter and lemon juice. after they ate it all i told them it was barble and u should have seen their eyes. Enywhoo ever since they ask me to make the same each time for a lunch.

Ek sal nie varswater vis eet nie.

Ek het al karp geeet en dit was nie so lekker nie, proe baie modderig.

 

Ek sal 'n bass of 'n forel probeer, maar dan moet dit uit 'n BAIE skoon dam uit kom en deur 'n meester kok voorberei word.
