Imagine my delight (as expressed by my smile below) when I was out silver fishing today and I was pleasantly surprised by this handsome tule mauling my wiggle wart!

http://www.ifish.net/uploads/521018281.jpg

This made my day as the upriver tule's are easily some of the best eating fish around. Here's how we fix them: At home I take it back to my compost and beat it against the side of the bin a bit. This loosens up the skin so it can easily be peeled off. Then I brace the fish against the side of the bin on the ground and with a swift kick remove it's head (makes great fertilizer). From there it's back to the kitchen where the skin is removed and discarded and the tail is twisted off. We usually don't find it necessary to cook the fish at all - it flakes right off the bone into the food processor.

I usually add a cup of mayo for every 2 pounds of fish and throw in some tarragon vinegar, salt, and scallions (one variation is to go with liquid smoke instead). A quick whirr and you've got some of the best spread around. I give the kids a box of triscuits and this spread and they are always begging for more.

The rest of the fresh fish can be frozen without losing any of its eating quality.

In my opinion these are one of the most underated fish out there!

Enjoy!!!

Fisheromen,

Please, please, please step forward and elaborate.

As I see it, there are two choices. The first is, you are dead serious. The second is you have immense literary talents.

In either case, please step to the front of the line and accept my


I haven't laughed that hard in some time. YUK!

PS - The visual of your kids begging 'Steve's Tule Pate' is pretty funny.

Whaaaaat?!?!?!?!

I feel like you guys are making fun of me! I mean I knew that my opinion of Tules might engender some debate but I at least thought I'd be taken seriously!

What does it take to get a little respect around here?!!!!!

Seriously though....

I did actually try to smoke and eat those things in high school. Couldn't figure out why they never came out very well. Fortunately experience taught me that no matter how fun it is to catch one, or how bright they might be, IT IS NEVER, EVER worth keeping a tule (unless you are desperate for fertilizer or in order to convince some poor neophyte how tasty they are so he takes his home as well - but that would be intolerably cruel). Let me stress that again, NEVER.

Glad you enjoyed.

Nice recipe Fisheromen, I used something similar to create an exterior spackle for filling in imperfections in my siding (lower ratio of mayo to tule). Now I have to see if I can come up with a good bondo mix :smile:

SpinnerDog,
I think the only other ingrediant you would need to complete the formula for your bondo mix would be some Willamette River sturgeon meat. If it works maybe you and I could get together and Discuss a patent. :smile:

This is similar to a recipe I have for Tule's. Place a Tule fillet in the oven with a brick and bake for 45 minutes. Remove fish and brick, throw away fish and eat the brick...
