Went to Pike Place market yesterday, sure glad I don’t have to buy seafood.  :bigshock:

   Seems a bit high.  Local "Market Basket" stores in N.H. have haddock fillets @$5.99 lb.  They're showing Alaskan Cod @$6.99 lb.  I know the haddock is fresh out of the Atlantic, but I believe the cod was pre-frozen.

Edit:  Just looked at their on-line flyer.  They show Alaskan King Crab legs @$19.99 lb.  I don't get it!

She makes me eat it. She says I have to eat more “healthy”. 

Me...”let’s go out for tacos”.  Her....”we’re staying home and having a healthy meal of Halibut.”  Me...”Baah”.    Her ... “it won’t kill you to eat fish once a week”

Hey now... halibut (or lincod) fish tacos, with the fish cooked in a tomatillo simmer sauce, are one of my favorite home-cooked meals!  Warm soft corn tortillas, some sour cream and cilantro.... a little lime squeezed over them for good measure... yum!

Looking good Fisher.

Agree, Croaker you don't know what your missing. Try changing up your recipes, never tried the tomatillo simmer sauce but I think my next taco night I will go with threeweights recommendation. I eat fish 2 or 3 times a week, sometimes more sometimes less, but am trying these days to go 4 times a week - extremely healthy and I tire of chicken - glad I love fish!    I picked up a few filets of sturgeon from a friend so that will be my next experiment with fish.

FISH TACOS!
Croaker run down to Mission Beach and see what flavor is all about!  You can deep fry, or grill the fish.  Your wife will think you’re hot!  Except I don’t like salmon in fish tacos- white fish only for me.

I agree those prices are high but I don't think any of us want a cost accountant determining how much our fish cost per pound.

even on some of my most "lean" fishing trips to Vancouver island my cost per pound was not that high! If we had to pay those prices for our "fresh frozen" fish we get here in the Denver area I would be eating more red meat and chicken! Fisherdv those tacos look good! I think I am going to make fish and shrimp tacos for dinner tonight! YUM!

She says tortillas are made with lard. The crispy ones that I like are fried in more lard.   :doh:

Those crab open face tacos look delicious.

In the 12 seasons I have had my boat the seafood I have caught has more than paid for my boat.50 pounds of Halibut or Salmon at 20 a pound is $1000.Crab and shrimp are'nt cheap either.Halibut costs me the most due to the distance travelled.Salmon is almost free.

Omega is a brave man! I would never get into justifying the cost of my boating/fishing/trips with the cost of the fish that comes home.  However, Diablo's prices could make it work, eventually....   :jester:

   Omega is a "brave man"?  C'mon Mark......have you no "imagination"?   Can you not see the forest for the trees?  Is there so much fog on that island that Nature has inflicted her cataracts upon your vision? 

   Wait a minute............I forgot what I wanted to say. 

   Oh yeah, that's right.......Omega is just a better angler.  :jester:

I bought the boat because I wanted the boat. I put fuel in it because I like to be on the water in the boat. I started fishing to have something to do while enjoying being on the water.  Therefore, any fish I bring home are all FREE to me, all caught incidentally to my boat ride.

I have to agree with you Heron. Fishing is a great reason to be out on a boat but if there was no fishing I would find another reason to have and be out on a boat.  :beerchug:

    Ding ding ding ding!  Excuse me...........would somebody please hand Blue Heron the stuffed animal of his choice.  It seems he's hit the target square on the nose.  You see, I've oftentimes considered the fish I got from my boat ride in the same light.  I know, I know, I've told this story before, but (for those who have already heard it) try to suffer through it again:   You see, years ago, people would occasionally approach me and say how fortunate I was to own a boat, and thereby, could get my fish for free.  I can't exactly recall the number, but my response was usually something like this:  "Yes.......why should I pay $3.99 a lb. for fish at the market when I can own a boat a pay $50.00 a lb.?"  :jester:

   In order to truly appreciate this, I guess you have to be from New England; where the season (for small boats at least) is considerably shorter than the Northwest.

I'll third that guys. My time on the water with my friends and family is priceless. I track my boat gas cost every year as a reflection of my on water time.

I'm glad I don't need to justify my boating cost by the fish I bring home and, as long there is a comfy seat to Gibson's with the wife a few times, everyone is happy.
