Chinook Salmon to catch and eat. Ling Cod is good to eat but not terribly exciting to catch.

Striped Bass - prominent inshore fish that allow fun fishing close to home and available almost all year. Fun to target with light tackle, live bait, trolling, etc.

Catch

1) Giant BFT because they pull harder than anything, even though I think YFT and Bigeye pound for pound pull harder
2) Swordfish: Pull hard, run hard, jump and good to eat.
3) Marlin: Jump and pull hard

Catch and Eat
1) Sword: obvious see above
2) Yellowfin & Big Eye: If I cook tuna I prefer YFT and I would sell all of my big BFT
3) Seabass: Easy to catch and taste great.

Wahoo would be on the list but I just don't get enough where I fish to put them on my favorite.

amberjack: topwater or jigging -- nonstop action, great strikes and you can use some lighter gear to finesse them in

Fluke is tough to beat, both raw and cooked. I catch so much Black Sea Bass and Stripe Bass that we eventually get a little tired of both before the freezer is empty of last seasons catch. The Fluke is always the first to go, but then again, it’s also what I end the season with the least amount on hand of in the freezer, could be a bit of a novelty factor.

Fresh Black Sea Bass retails in my neck of the woods anywhere from $12-20 a pound, more then double what lobster does and most other fin fish, someone must think Black Sea Bass is the best........

Tuna. More specifically bigeye, yellowfin, and bluefin. Second to that has to be swordfish.

Snook and jacks for consistent action. Snook are also one of my favorites to eat. But I will put everything aside to go chase tarpon. I hooked one almost 8 years ago and no other fish has gotten into my brain like they have. Like a power lifting sailfish on steroids in close quarters. Even the juveniles are more fun to me than any other fish.

Halibut for the catch and is also good eating, but my favorite is Yellow Eye rock fish.

Cobia, such an angry fish.
