Ow! That was my feelings!: Tartar sauce on fish is equivalent to ketchup on a steak. You are doing it wrong.


You are doing it wrong. Stuck within the parameters foodie culture deems appropriate. Be your own person. Eat what you like, let others do the same.

A few of the trophy trout lakes around here are having similar problems. Our water is very alkaline at the best of times, but the increase in heat has made the water pH go up high enough that the invertebrates are dying off en masse. I was catching 18" rainbow trout that were 1.5 lbs.. normally they should be 3 - 4 lbs. Not a single bit of food in the stomachs. Looked like fish heads on toothpicks. All the lakes affected seem to be in a very similar altitude, lakes lower and higher don't seem to have the problems.

The alkalinity in one lake was so high that the metal on my boat had signs of corrosion after a couple days sitting in the water. Lots of the lakes have thick bands of white alkali salts around the shore.. I have never seen that in the 30 years I have fished these lakes.

wxboy: This could be one way of dealing with the Asian Carp problem.


Bad news is the Asian Carp will probably tolerate these conditions better than the fish you want to survive.

How about Ketchup on fish?

I do not allow ketchup on steak at my house, I don't care if you like it it's just not an option and I will take your steak from you.

I can definitely vouch for this. A lot of farm ponds are very shallow and drying up. The dead fish are everywhere.

So is this global warming, global cooling, or someone really hungry for a good fish fry?

Wouldn't you end up with a surplus of tartar in that situation?
