    Raw Tuna for Saltwater, Blackened Catfish for freshwater.

    Depends on how I’m going to cook it. I saltwater fish all the time and I have tons of favorites. If fried Hogfish and fluke (flounder) are imho the best. Honestly I would rather have hogfish than bluefin tuna about 75% of the time. If you have never had it you are missing out. Not many places have it and you pretty much can either go spear fishing and get you some or head to South FL or more specifically the keys and lots of places there have it. For sushi or very lightly seared rare I prefer bluefin tuna. There is a reason they can sell for $50 a pound. Yellowfin works but bluefin is where it’s at. We caught this bluefin pictures March 21 and it weighed a little over 550 pounds and I still have a freezer full. The fish doesn’t just look big because of the angle. It was 103” long (8’7”.) I also love swordfish, mako, tilefish, striped sea bass, cobia, halibut, and wahoo. I also love marlin but I don’t like to kill them but I will harvest 1-2 a year and they are very tasty. If you have never had blackfin tuna it’s as good as yellowfin and almost as good as bluefin if it’s super fresh. The issue is it’s doesn’t keep well. It doesn’t freeze well and when you do it can get a very strong flavor. But when only hours or a few days fresh it is just as good for steaks and sushi as yellowfin.

    Good thing I like catfish. Came back with 8 keepers from the lake today. We normally fry them in Avacado oil seasoned with lemon pepper.

    Ok. Patagonian Toothfish. Prepared by a proper seafood restaurant. Rarely have. Expensive.

    Also know as Chilean seabass.

    If done right, I like deep fried lake perch with lots of tartar sauce.

    I voted for mahi mahi, but I like almost every fish, that's why I live here. :fishing:

    I even like smoked mullet after having learned how to remove the bones.
    Yes, I like anchovies too. And largemouth bass and grouper. Tuna steaks. :eat:

    The dirty scavenging bottom feeders like flounder and catfish are also good once in awhile.
    Tilapia is probably my least favorite, farm raised in sewage. I don't want to think about it. :fishing:

    My favorite fish is the one I don't have to pick bones out of. That mostly means Swordfish and Shark/Stingray.
