These are our Flathead.

They are very prolific, and can grow to over 3ft long. They are also known as Frogs here, I guess they kinda look like a lizard too. They make for great eating either way.

Flathead in the USA are a type of predatory catfish. Unlike many types of catfish in the USA which also scavenge a lot. Our flatheads eat mostly live food when mature. Ive caught small ones on worms very rarely. Ours grow pretty big and when they do they get very strong tasting and tough.

 

Flatheads infested our Susqhehanna River over a decade ago.  Now there aren't many other species of catfish left.  They grow huge. People have caught them 75lds.

 

Good week with the smokepole! 1st one grunted in

New to the forum and glad to be here and to find this thread! I recently took my first elk, a cow the end of September. Due to having to move unexpectedly because of toxic mold in the place we were renting I didn't get a chance to try my harvest until last week. A couple sirloin steaks seasoned with some salt, pepper, and a small sprinkle of garlic powder. Fork tenderized as I seasoned but I found out while I was eating that tenderizing wasn't necessary, but didn't hurt. Pan fried in browned butter and one of the best steaks I've ever had.

Welcome aboard Jon! Nice elk...my elk hunt went sideways when some folks who had access to private land thought it was within their right to ruin our hunt on public land because the herd we were on USED TO BE on that private land. Oh, and folks on horseback screwed up the next herd we found.

Thank you for the peppers and for pointing me here! Some people need to take a long walk off a short cliff, or have their butts kicked until their noses bleed.

I love elk. Its the only meat i could use to completely replace beef. A good cow is hard to beat for overall flavor. Nilgai is pretty darn close though and probably cheaper to hunt.

Grew up in Tasmania in the mid 70's.

 

Those things were plentiful and considered trash fish by most back then only because of the massive amounts of bones.

 

We being unknowing Americans would filet and fry up for fish and chips...dame fine eats if you ask me  ;)

Those look a lot like ling-cod and with that white flaky meat I bet they are delicious!

I don't suppose you know Mary, the Crown Princess of Denmark?

 

Massive amount of bones? You can fillet them in such a way that you remove every bone in the meat. 

They are becoming very popular table fare here now, they usually cost AU$26-$28/kg to buy. They are delicious for sure, the ones you catch yourself taste even better.  :party:

The meat is flakey, and yet firm. Flavor is subtle enough to please those with particular taste in fish.

I agree, very underrated fish with a great firm and tasty flesh.
