One of the best eating fish there is. Move over halibut.

Wife and I jumped on Art Warbelo's mail plane back in September of '98; headed to Ambler...and boated from there up the Kobuk to the mouth of the Pah.
We caught 36"+ sheefish until our arms hurt. Every. Single. Cast.

It doesn't take much to surpass halibut in the flavor department. It's way down the list on white meat fish as far as I'm concerned.
It's one and only saving grace is that it freezes well.

I'll take a rockfish or lingcod over any halibut.

It doesn't freeze any better than pike, and doesn't taste a good.

As well, if it gets cooked even a little bit too much, it's like eating cardboard.

I have a freezer full of fresh walleye, northern and jumbo yellow perch fillets. They are all frozen in water and taste-wise they are in a class by themselves.

With halibut the larger fish don't have the flavor or texture, but smaller ones, especially fresh can be excellent. Halibut is a fantastic meat.
Cooking is crucial, but that applies to most meats..

I guess we're just going to have to agree to disagree on this one. I'll never refer to Halibut as "excellent" and I've eaten in literally within an hour or two of being caught. big, little, doesn't matter.
I will agree with you though that walleye and perch are excellent fish.

Laughing here! Have eatem much walleye, perch, and pike, both fresh and (yuk!)frozen. It is not in the same universe with fresh rockfish, lingcod, or any number of other saltwater fish.

Halibut is good fish, but it is just not in a league with truly good fish.

Back in the day on a power troller in SE we aged halibut in a wet gunny sack in the rigging. We then ate absolutely still-wiggling fresh with aged... the aged spanked fresh. At the time it was commonly done by some segments of the fweet.

I also much prefer bigger halibut for smoking. Big uniform pieces end up with texture much like ham. Sliced thin it is outstanding.

I've been eating fresh king about twice a week. Slimy winter king makes the best salmon patties on the planet, btw.

I agree pass me the Ling cod, Rockfish, and Halibut cheeks. Salmon is King to me.

And I'll regard your opinion the same way I always do....

Anyone that thinks that jumbo yellow perch and walleye from far northern Ontario are somehow inferior is nuts. I'll put a cold-water walleye shore lunch against any fish, from anywhere in the world. Alaska has some excellent ocean fish choices, but none taste like a fresh-caught walleye.
Not to mention the ridiculously meager ling and rockfish limits.


Back on topic, love the sheefish......quick to strike, a blast to catch, and even better to eat.
