As threads for some recipes keep getting closed could the mods give us a list of acceptable fish to eat please.
Roker is far to good to chuck back.Next time i get a big thornback from loch etive I will be keeping it for the table those wings look delicous!
Chris, let's be honest here, but some members are posting more relevant posts here than others, be they provocative or not.Local fisheries are the ones to ask about what is legal and what isn't.
What we are experts on is posts which cause the forum to kick off big style and go beyond the site rules. Some members are wise to this and post to get a reaction, they seem to thrive on it more than a tug on their line IMHO
There are those members who like to catch fish and eat them and there are are others who like to fish for a bite for sport and release their catch. Then there are those who like to post pictures of their catch knowing it will provoke a bite, internet fishing, you going to be silly enough to bite? .
This thread is a perfect example.
So manipulative and to be honest, only word I can find in my limited vocabulary....... SAD.
You know the reason this thread was started as well as I do.No way am I a getting on a conservationist high horse, just sick of people posting for a reaction whatever the area of the site.
I go for what I call a mackerel murder September every year, it fills my freezers for early doors next year before the mack are in season. Economics apply, saves me buying them.
It is as I name it, a murder, 3 fishing, one spot where I know they will be, 1 unhooking and it is hard work. We fill all four freezers. The boat looks like a charnel house. Think I am going to publish pictures for reaction.
Same with cod, rays, bass, bream. My best bream session was 157 in 90 min 2 of us fishing mind, you think I am going to publish pictures? Did I keep them all or just enough for the pot, you a'int ever going to know. Best ray session I ever had, well you get the picture, they are pants frozen anyway.
My point is there are pictures here designed cynically to get a bite, don't really care what area of the forum they are in.
You bit and had a pop at me for mentioning it, I completely agree this is cooking so why the massive table of fillets unless you have a market for them, surely more than a family could consume and absolutely nothing to do with cooking.
QED I think.
