I Love Fishing As Much As Anyone Does, I Go Atleast Twice Every Week, But I Dont Eat Fish That I Catch, I Will Eat Fish Bought From The Shop If Its Crumbed Or Battered For Me, But I Just Cant Eat My Own Fish, I Clean And Cook It For Others
The Fish I Buy From The Fish And Chip Shop Is No Doubt No-where Near As Fresh As The Fish I Catch But I Just Cant Do It, How Many Of You Out There Are The Same?? Its Not A Cruelty Green Thing, Infact I Dont Mind Killing Them And Throwing Them On The Ice, Its Like A Chook I Guess, I Couldnt Eat My Own But I Love Chicken

I'll eat fish I catch if it's a good table fish, not too big, not too small. Usually it's squire in the 40-50cm range. I have no problem letting them go if I have no need for them.

this is easy for me no i don't like the taste of fish and i never have. people seem shocked when they say nice fish he would be good on the plate and i say as much as i love fishing i don't eat them.

regards,
keechie

i eat my fish if im hungry enough and i dont already have something planned. And i only take 1 fish at a time , unless i promised someone if i catch mor ei would give them one.
E.g
This one time i crisined my new rod with a 32cm bream, and i was tossing up, but since i had something waiting for me, i threw it back.

Yep ... love to eat any fish I catch .... seem to taste better than any purchased fish. My wife won't though. She will eat fish and chips from the take away, even filleted fish from the shop..... but whole fiish ... no way..... not even if I fillet the thing.

Cheers

I love eating my own catch, (something about the whole hunting and gathering thing I suppose) I keep enough for a feed for me and the missus, then the rest are caught and released for fun.

I love a feed of fresh fish, especially when I can bring it home myself.

I'd love to be able to say that I release legal size fish when I have a feed, but I'm not that good a fisherman:(

I'll catch enough for a feed or 2 or even 3, then go home, mission accomplished.
I hate cleaning fish!
Generally I won't fish again until the previous catch have been eaten.
The exception would be say 2 decent mornings in a row when I can take my 4.2 tinny over the local bar and fish inshore. Such calm, flat conditions are fairly rare so I don't mind taking advantage of them.
Must also add that I will take a few extra choppers or small mac tuna to do up as bait, salted and frozen they are excellent.
Personally I don't really want to catch a fish purely for fun, but each to their own.
Sharks would prob be an exception, they are very durable!
Cheers.

;D Wife & I consume fish we catch 3 times a week , when we miss out its down to the slip,slop fish shops, but i must admit the last lot we purchase was fresh.
I know quiet a few anglers who do not eat there catch, its got me confused.
Would not like to be a Tiger ah ah.

I and my family love to eat fish, i have a few old pensioner couples in my area that i supply with a feed at times and they love it , I put a lot of effort into keeping my catch fresh and fillet and bone all of my catch,I love to fish and enjoy sharing my catch with others that enjoy fish, I have offered fillets to new friends and if i get a complaint like "oh!!! it was alright but" I never offer again, I limit my catch to what i need for my friends.

I rarely eat fish and then only what I catch.

You want to think very carefully about the fish and prawns that you buy over the counter.

If it is from overseas then the quality control is suspect.

They dont give a damm about our health.

I didnít have any issues with eating my legal size catch's but I never took more than I needed, and now Iíve been put on a diet where my meal plans are set, so its catch and release only for me now! But for me it is defiantly all about the fishing itself and a good feed is just a Pleasant side affect!!

Sassy I'd be very happy to take your catch off your hands! My family love fish, but I can't keep up the supply! Terrible to admit that at 46 yo and after probably 41 years fishing that I'm still learning!

Cheers

I love eating my catch. I enjoy the entire process (even cleaning and filleting) and take pride in the preparation and cooking.
I reckon there is nothing that can beat fresh fish straight on the BBQ.

i love to eat my catch [ although of late 14 mths] i have not fished, my mum can clean it .cook it just can,t eat it for some reason, and she used to fish with her dad [ my grandad] everytime he went out. beats me hey

With work, kids sporting activities etc I rarely get to fish, so if I can get out, and Bonus of all Bonuses I actually catch something legal, high chance it will be on the table that night, hopefully to some sort of praise :)
I used to do a lot of crabbing, that was satisfying but when you get all your pots stolen over 2 outings, why bother.

I absolutely love eating freshly caught fish.

I feel sorry for you blokes who dont like eating fish...:-/
Bearing in mind also how good it is for you.

Its recommended by many dieticians etc to eat fish at least twice a week.

I enjoy killing the fish so I then eat them so I don't waste it.

i let all my fish go. but if i get a tailor, it comes home to give to my mrs mum as she loves em. all the rest go back so i might be able to catch them again when there bigger, plus my mrs hates the smell of fish and has o.c.d so any thing that can make the slightest mess never enters the house. i do eat fish but if i want some i get a pice of flake from the fish and chip shop, no mess then to piss the mrs off.

i have eaten fish before that i have caught like flathead and whitting but that was back in the day when i used to catch them on bait. now days catching fish on lures i dont really keep them unless they are perfect eating size.

yes I eat my own fish buggered if I would throw good snapper over the side then head down the fish shop and pay $20 +/ Kg for it. Also at least you know exactly when and where your fish was caught and how it has been treated since it come out of the ocean. Only keep what i am gunna eat though

???? You don't eat fish because you caught them on a lure ??????
I don't get that logic ???????


I'd eat more of what I caught, if more of what I caught was edible:P:-[::);D

I allways bring the fish home and clean it , give it to the folks to cook as I hate cooking fish , but don't eat fish as much as I used to because I have had 3 bouts of sigatera [ think thats how you spell it ] and it isn't very pleasant , thought I was having a heart attack the first time , ever since I am very cautious about eating fish, and only eat small portions. but I can't have too many prawns anymore as they and shell fish make me crook as hell . wasn't always the case but they say the iodine builds up in your system so I can eat less and less all the time and some tims can't stomach seafood at all , so I envey yous who can eat lots of fish and shellfish .

We love to eat the fish we catch so long as they are legal size and good eating fish .Not fussed on taylor much unless bled and cooked straight away .
Don't usually catch much we like to get out in the boat to relax and get away from it all and wet a line to catch a fish is a bonus.
