    EXACTLY! All freshwater fish with downturned mouths (like suckers, carp, catfish) taste bad cuz they are what they eat: mud, silt dead stuff crap!
    Pike, walleye, perch, and trout/ salmon, now that is totally different, YUM:cheesy:

    if your not a big fan of a fishy flavor try striped or white bass, perfect fillet for people that don't like fish cause it has 0 flavor of it's own just takes whatever you give it, walleye/saugeye are great also :)

    Gotta disagree with the premise here. If flavor was dependent on what the animal ate, then lobster, crab and shrimp would be some of the most horrendous tasting stuff out there.

    But somehow it's amazingly tasty.

    Not to mention talapia, which, I understand, is very tasty.

    they are - Tilapia we spell it out here , but if its the same fish they originated in Africa I believe but they have become a staple food fish in China , I have eaten a few of these and for a fresh water fish the pin bones number less than you find in carp (common or grass) thus they are less trouble to eat

    the other very tasty freshwater fish they have in stock ponds out here is the red bellied piranha my PB on rod and line is 3lb 2 oz and that was really tasty again a low pin bone to meat ratio
    which for me is why I normally prefer salt water fish species
