    striped bass

    After a great morning on Norris Lake, looking for recipe & technique to smoke some smaller striped bass

    I have never been successful smoking striper, at least in anyway way that I enjoy. The delicate white meat is excellent fried, steamed, baked, BBQed whole, and its great for fish tacos. Its very resistant to overcooking. There are many reasons I spend my weekends out on the water fishing for them, just not for Smoking.

      Yes, as long as there within the size window.

    Hi neighbor. You obviously live here in East Tennessee fishing Norris. I live in between Cherokee and Douglas. Stripers are a good, sweet fish. Me personally I wouldn't want to smoke em. My .02 on that though.


      While cleaning out the freezer, I found some extra frozen fillets and tried MH fancy shmancy brine and smoked a few striper filets @ 215 with brown sugar glaze. Turned out great, way better than expected. Kids asked for it again tonight!
