....I mean the taste that was associated with these fish from years ago. You know, that off-white almost lobster like meat, that succulent distinct flavor you could detech with blind folders on. I remember it from years ago, it's etched into my brain and taste buds, what happen to that taste? Could it be that those fish and their off-spring are gone forever? I hope not, that would be a shame.
The River Walleyes always had a stronger flavor to them than Lake Walleyes, in my opinion of course, but both fish had a familiar and detectable flavor that was distinguishable between the two. That's gone, at least I can't tell anymore, can you?
I don't make a habit of eating fish from markets or resturants simply for that reason, most are farm raised and come from "who know's where"? I sum it up to contaminates and major problems with our waterways. Canadian waters appear to be one last place where these fish continue to taste like what I remember from years ago. It's a shame when you catch a Walleye for supper but have to toss it out because once you cook it, it's not edible. Just food for thought, I'm sure the same thing is happening throughtout our food chain....
