With Lent soon upon us I got to thinking today when do salmon start running? Where does the salmon come from that is still in the market cases?..frozen left over from a year ago? and lastly how do us flat landers ever get a chance to buy Copper River salmon without traveling to Washington and Alaska? Just sign me a hungry kat!

    one feral kat, I think Frozen Chosen could offer some links to the Copper River Salmon. And George from Littleton, Colorado has a import source. They are budget busters tho.

    <p />one feral kat,[p]I'm from the Chicago area and catch salmon and trout through January. The fish you see in the stores are either flown in from the north or are farm raised similiar to catfish.[p]MickeyT.

  • one feral kat, Spring will not get here soon enough for me. I won't be getting any fresh salmon but the crappie I get will be wonderfull. I usually deep fat fry but looking to egg this year.[p]CWM
  • Car Wash Mike,
    Can you give me a shout when the crappie start bedding up or least start hiting? Or better yet, when the deep fried crappie are about 2 hrs away from the table! Mmmmmmm! Mmmmmm! Like eating candy, only its's good for you![p]

    Car Wash Mike,How are you planning to egg your crappie?[p]
  • Sippi, I cooked some on a weber a few years ago. I just put them in a pan with butter and lemon and apple chunks. Flavor was wonderful but the fish fell apart to easy.[p]CWM

  • Dr. Chicken, Will do just that. Maybe we should possibly meet at Clinton Lake. I caught around 100 over there last year in a 2 day fish.[p]CWM

  • Car Wash Mike,
    I'd go for that! Last time I got into fish like that, it was in Texas at Proctor lake. It was fun, let me tell ya![p]E-mail me if you get a chance! [p]

    Car Wash Mike,
    I have had the same experience. Fish taste great but fall to pieces. I am going to try skinning some with some catfish pliers and cooking them whole. I have to catch them first, but weather should break shortly.
