    for eating i think tuna and flounder...

    for catching...
    1) trout (freshwater)
    2) snook (brackish)
    3) dorado or mahi or whatever you may call it (salt)

    I like halibut or swordfish. Tuna steak is good too.

    Well, there have been some real cold fish in my time............... A slight wiggle would have been great!.....................

    Just had a thought of a past experience, the tuna in Japan was sensational, eating sashimi off a flat Japanese tummy, with Wasabi & Soy Sauce in the belly button will take some beating, nothing has come close in all my travels....................

    I like Salmon Too...

    Salmon is prob my favorite everyday fish. But the best fish is when ever I go deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, and catch Trigger fish. Man that stuff is hands down the best "regular fish, fish" I ever had! Was catching them two at a time last time I went. Their not the biggest but certanly the best.

    Salmon and mashed potatos is one of my fav meals... yumm!



    Whafe I hate you.

    I guess we really need Geo or FM to tell us what fish everyone eats at whistler. then we'll know what we should be eating.

    Salmon with some Tony Chachere's (creole seasoning) on a bed of mash potator is really yummy and simple.

    McDonald's?

    I usually like the local fish wherever I am.
    Ahi is great when fresh on Maui, salmon in Vancouver, cod or sei in Norway, red snapper in Puerto Vallarta, fish tacos in Baja California, grouper sandwich in Florida.
    Or Filet 'O Fish here in Ohio.

    Julie makes a dish called "Smashed Salmon' that she borrowed from the nearby Kona Bistro. Grilled Alaskan salmon with mango chutney topping over garlic mashed potatoes on top of fresh spinach and shredded carrot salad..
    I'm lookng for a recent picture of it.

    orange roughy is my favorite fish. Chilean sea-bass is pretty high on the list, but they've become endangered, so now I'm too guilty to eat 'em.

    me and BA were separated at birth -- same bike, same passion for salmon & mashed 'taters...

    Depends on how ya' cook it I guess. Some I like are battered and fried, like Perch, etc...Some I like are raw like Toro(Tuna belly. Yum!!) Where I live Trout is popular. Snapper, Groupper and the like, I prefer grilled. Whafe, while in New Zealand, the wine, Mussels, and Lamb were standouts for me. That and the Thai food for some reason (in Christchurch!). Wild caught Sockeye Salmon is sumpin to savor too. Hard to pick a "best" though! I could go on forever! I LIKE FISH!

    Hog snapper - hard to catch by fishing so you gotta plug them. They are kinda stupid tho, once you are under water they will stick around and make for an easy shot. Some will even turn sideways and make a super easy shot. Dont think you can order them at a restaurant

    #2
    Grouper - exact opposite to Hog. Fishing for them is super fun once you get a hit you gotta rip them out of the water before they run back to their hole. Pulling a 28+ inch grouper is one hell of a work out. I actually caught one by trolling a spoon, stumped all my buddies when a 22 inch gropuer came out of the water when we were fishing top water for Kings. Shooting grouper you gotta move slow, stay low or they run.

    I have never eaten snook, but i hear they are excellent. Love catching them tho.
    Orange Roughy, Mahi, shark, its all good.

    Oh yea mini lobster season is a month away!

    Truvativ Stylo 2.2....black. They're light enough and come with a sleek bash guard. I still need to order a wheelset (hope pro2 and dt 5.1's). They'll beat me home though.

    only 10 more threads and all have the full build out of you

    It's shaping up to be a nice ride. You will be one happy owner. Congratulations geolover. I'm still surprised you never hopped on to a Transition. Hopefully you will find the time to ride when you get back.

    Oh, I hopped on a few. I think my favorite is the Preston, but it is a bit of a porker. Didn't care for the Covert I rode...haven't ridden a Bottlerocket yet. I'd like to ride the new Blindside when it comes out...I'm likin' the geometry numbers that were just published on their website.

    I have never thought much of what fish I'm eating... weird as I'm from a town by the sea... I really don't like fish much. I prefer seafood (well, all seafood excepting fish ).

    I'd have to pick Red Snapper (Huachinango?) and Tuna. I'm easy to please.

    Well... I'm off for a quick (muddy, it's been raining all week, which is good) ride... See ya!

    I agree with AM, shouldnt need to Fack fish with mashed spud, it sounded good, but kinda against the grain for me................... Sushimi is great, it is even greater in Japan, not only from a flat Japanese tummy, but in all cases...

    Geo, we will have to check out your suggestion in Whistler though!

    DB, what dates are you planning to be in Whistler? I hope you have flat pedals on your SuMo, want to take it for a spin, you can thrash the Nicolai....

    For me, fish is a very cheap meal compared to meat, you can get a shiat load of fish in a KG...

    And yes MintSauce, the AB's cooked you fella's, getting all cocky after winning the Super 14..... Good for them to come back from being down in the first half, shows the inner strength and the supreme courage of the kiwi's... Mwah ha ha ha

    Mashed potato's may seem odd to serve with fish, but it goes well with salmon specificially, and most restaurants "that know what they're doing" will serve it that way. I couldn't imagine eating it with any other kind of fish, but than again salmon isn't much like any other fish.... You should try it.


    I usually just bite the salmon in half, lick up all the eggs, and feed the rest to my cubs though so to each their own.

    I agree Salmon is a wonderful fish, I prefer it raw, with great amounts of Wasabi... But it is good cooked too....

    Well next visit to the US of A or Canada, will indeed have to try it... In fact I will be in St Louis from July 9th till July 20, then back to Spain for a week, then off to Whistler, Canada, Yeah ha big time. Many years of waiting to visit this spot....

    I felt the rear-end was a little flexy. I didn't spend too much time on it though...and it could have been due to wheel/hub flex.

    FM is NOT getting a Covert, BTW.

    Cooked Springbok....kiss my @$$!

    AM and Whafe....you beat us fair and square. The good thing for us is that you didn't completely annihilate us(which has kinda been the norm lately). But we had you the first 60 minutes so just watch out. We're on the comeback trail **holding thumbs**

    Cooked Springbok is indeed a great meat....

    Yep, a good game, great practise for the AB's to come back from being down............

    AM shouldnt be proud of the Aussie team anyways... Do they actually have a team for this year AM?

    As long as the final has the AB's and no Wallibies I am happy, and preferably Springbok's
