    How do Corvina taste? They look beautiful.

    I tried cooking one once. It wasn't very good. Maybe I did something wrong?

    I love the taste of local yellowtail and halibut. I try to avoid catching bay bass and have never tried cooking one. I like salmon. For me, lake trout not so much unless I mix it up like a tuna salad spread. I don't like mackerel or sardines.

    Is Corvina one of the luxury fish to eat, or is the flavor so-so?

    I fish and consent to killing living creatures as my targets for delicious food. Yet I still have mixed feelings about this. I try to avoid collateral damage whenever I can. If a particular species is not exquisite on the palate, then I don't want to kill it.

    What say Ye?

    Woke up extra early to catch the surface action. No disappointment here as Master-Baiter and I quickly found them fish.

    Condition was near perfect for the first 1.5 hr.

    As usual, M-B out fished me xx-to 1.

    Until next time, Fish On.

    Glad I could impart a morsel or two on you. . this vina was caught in a similar manner to that one you took with me, I assume?
