Fresh Water Or Salt, What Is Your Favorite Fresh Caught Fish?

Growing up in northern Michigan, we ate a lot of fish from fresh water, we never bought fish in fact from a store throughout my entire childhood. We caught it and I really can not think of one I did not like. Pike, bass, bream, perch, sunfish, trout, even catfish (which were a pain to clean), bluegills, and smelt, we caught it and ate it. It was fresh. So I am curious about this as my wife growing up in Haiti never had a freshwater fish until I went and caught a bucketful in upstate NY. What is your choice and if you have a story to tell, well I love a good story. Can you tell?
