Salmon Fishing
« on: August 10, 2022, 02:03:29 pm »
Fishing!

Hello to my readers and followers...
 
This last couple months I have been doing a lot of fishing...
...steam and river fishing for Salmon.   

This is the time of year that the Salmon varieties of Pink,
Sockeye and Silver/Coho are doing their "spawning runs upstream"
   
Almost always the fishing is very good here... I have already been out
in the last month and caught and grilled many Pink Salmon..

There is nothing better than fresh caught Salmon...
... swimming in the water in the morning and on the grill or in the
frying pan for dinner that same day !

Question: Do any of you do any regular fishing...  details???  pictures? ???

HUGS,
Danielle

That sounds like a lot of fun.  Salmon is a HUGE staple in our house.  It also seems to be one of the only things you can expect to find at a restaurant that is actually healthy LOL. 

It would be great to be able to enjoy my time outdoors while also saving myself $20/lb!

Dear Sara:
Well... the waders,  the poll, reel and line, and the bait are not free, along with the gas money to get to where I am going and back....
..... but it is more than worth the efforts and costs.

Fresh caught, immediately pan fried the same day.... never frozen .....  nothing better!!!!

HUGS,
Danielle

If I can find the time to go to the Pacific Northwest, I will try crabbing next time, if possible.  Probably just off a pier at first.  There are lots of crabbing places and restaurants along the coast.  Some restaurants will cook what you catch I hear.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

Danielle, I work for a government department which manages fishing in my state, and we promote fishing sustainably and humanely. I also get involved in university studies into stress on fish caught by various methods, and mostly I find that streams with predominant species are the best. I have issues with fishing in areas with high amounts of unwanted by catch, and also ‘sport’ fishing, using very light tackle to catch fish.

When fish are hooked, most with fight as if their lives depend on it, because it does! A fish that is quickly reeled in and retrieved, then killed humanely immediately will be in the best condition for consumption. Those who battle until they are exhausted can flood their tissues with toxins so much that if released, they will die anyway, and the quality of flesh of fish retained for consumption is often poorer. We observed that as many as 40% of some species of fish known as great fighters, will not survive catch and release.

Fish are a great source of nutrients, and getting out to catch and kill your own is the most ‘honest’ form of procurement, as well as getting you out into nature! Care for your catch, get them out of the water quickly, dispatch them humanely, and quickly prepare them for storage to maximise the quality of the flesh. Don’t forget to appreciate the environment you are out in, it is so good for your soul!

Hugs,

Allie

I eat fresh at the food market, which is likely fresh frozen, also frozen, and canned.
When traveling and fresh salmon is on the menu, I often try it.

If you live near rivers and streams, fresh caught Rainbow Trout is very good.

I like most fish. I do not eat Tilapia and rarely eat catfish though.

I've only ever ate salmon that comes in tins. And it was utterly disgusting. I'm guessing the taste of actual salmon steaks is akin to having a tuna steak compared to the stuff they put in tins. That's very much a posh person realm in the UK lol. But I did have a tuna steak one time when I was in the navy. It's completely different to the stuff they put in tins and sold to parents.

Yep, fresh salmon is a totally different thing.  Really good, and really good for you.  Dangit, I'm salivating just thinking about it!

Cultured salmon are so popular globally, and here in S. Korea, local governments try to build indoor facilities to farm them. But water temperature is still critical, and it is too warm for salmon here. I wonder how they will supply cold water. But it is even possible in Florida, although I am skeptical of the long-term profitability of the business: https://bluehousesalmon.com/raised-in-the-usa/

In the Alaskan coastal areas, you also may catch Pacific cod during the spawning season.

Those are fantastic, Danielle!  It looks like you're having a blast with it.  I especially like the photo-bomb by your friend.

Good stuff!
