Title: Fishing
Post by: Bittersteel on June 12, 2018, 11:37:59 PM
Couldn't find a thread about it so starting one.

Began fishing a few weeks ago, incredibly fun! Have had a hard time getting some, but got my first one today actually! And my second and third. Got a small, 1kg pike and two perch.

Anybody else fishing?

Did a short session but then after that the weather has been poor. Will try to get on it as well. Pike sucks but perch is pretty tasty. Was hoping to learn to cook some perch this year if i can catch some, im terrible at cooking in general but i do love eating fish.

Do u fish alone? I always set out with a pal, but i think i should do some solo queue because the relaxation of fishing isnt at its peak if someone is there with you.

lol, norrlänning fishing, no surprise there. Everyone says Perch is tasty, will see tomorrow. Haven't tasted Pike afaik but I can tell you now it smells like shit.

I've been either fishing by myself or with my brother/friend. I actually bring a radio so I can have it playing something while I'm alone. It's very relaxing. Was listening to the Sweden-Denmark game last saturday as I brought some food and went out on the lake.

Are you fishing on a lake, river or a stream?

We've got some pretty good salmon game over here in the north, but it is a bit further north from me and ive never really delved into it. Pretty easy to get into fishing if you are from around here, hell all of sweden has like rivers and lakes everywhere.

But yeah pike afaik is a ton of bone and meh meat, ive never tried it because ive always been told its trash. Get the hook out by any means that doesnt involve losing your fingers and then release back, ez.

I do a bit of beach fishing a few times a year for flathead (tasty Oceanic fish), usually with family. Solo does sound relaxing, I don't have my own rod or anything yet though. What equipment are you guys using?

GF and I do a fair bit of lake fishing during the summer. Mostly Perch and Bass. Went 8 or 9 times last season. Great fun, helps that we have a little inflatable boat that we can pack up and bring camping with us. Pack the motor up and we can fish easily in any park we visit.

Lakes around here are pretty great, years ago they were stocked with fish and the populations are very high. Came across these guys spawning in the river when we were up at the cottage last month. They are white suckers, haven't eaten them myself but I have heard they can be good even if they are a bit of work to cook properly.

Not listening to the peaceful trickling of water and the sounds of nature in total harmonious silence while fishing smh.

my buddy has a river in his backyard that feeds to the ocean and he's only 12km from the mouth so legally we don't need a license to fish there. i didn't get a bite last night but he caught a 29 inch trout and i'm still upset he refused to share

The Department of Environmental Conservation stocks fuckloads of tiny lakes, rivers and even ponds here. If it's state land and it's near a road, there's fishes in them waters I tell you what. Mostly perch and bass. There's a good natural population of catfish and bullheads around here too. I really like one of those caught from a clean, fresh body of water. They really soak up the terroir and if you get one from a shitty lake it will taste foul as fuck.

I like to bring a big gallon bag with me, put a 1/2 cup to 1 cup of marinade or curry paste and fixins in there. Catch a few small fish, gut them, toss the good bits in the bag and start a fire. They soak up plenty of flavor by the time the fire is ready for cooking.

Dark soy sauce, garlic, ginger, fresh chili chunks. If you fancy go ahead and replace soy sauce with curry paste or fermented black bean sauce.

Olive oil, garlic, black pepper, fresh rosemary and thyme.

Natural peanut butter, fish sauce, curry powder, coriander seed, fresh cilantro.

Bring a couple limes. Slice and use half of them in your beers, half of them when serving the fish. Sides are one of those instant alfredo noodle packets and a can of corn that you open and just put in the edge of the fire pit. Hunger is the best seasoning, so make sure you get a good hike in before dinner time.

They are white suckers, haven't eaten them myself but I have heard they can be good even if they are a bit of work to cook properly.

ayy that's cannibalism  :twisted:
