    Anyone tried this:

    [IMG] Removing mud taste from fish.

    Possibly old news but if you take a cup of vinegar and add it to a gallon of water, then soak you cleaned filet in it for about 10 min, all the mud and wild taste will be removed from your filets.

    What kind of vinegar? I'm sure that would make a big difference.

    I wonder if that works with crawfish or Gator?

    People used to soak game birds (sage hen) in vinegar to clean up the taste...cool if it works on fish too.

    The best way I've found is to release them and cook a steak!!

    For any kind of suspect fish, you can fix it by doing the following:

    Place the fish fillets on a clean board. Place the board in a larger dish that it will fit in. Add milk until the fish is covered. Let sit in the fridge overnight. Next day, remove from fridge. Place the board and fillets in the over for 20 minutes at 400*. Remove from oven, take the fish off of the board, throw the fish away, and eat the board.

    My dad had a recipe for mudhens: you clean `em, pluck `em, and marinate `em in a mixture of one part gasoline and two parts kerosene along with 3 hickory axe handles. After two days of marinating, throw the birds out and grill the axehandles.
