I've eaten White Bass (native fresh water stripe bass), Rockfish (salt water Striper stocked in fresh water), and Hybrid (cross between the 2). Although all 3 have a different texture, none of them are fishy if cleaned right. Absolutely all of the red meat needs to be cut away, if you don't like "fishy". The problem with most White Bass is that there isn't much left on a typical size White Bass after you cut all the red away.

I have never tried broiling or grilling although I have friends who have. I always fry them. Dip the fillets in egg and then coat with a 50/50 mix of yellow corn meal and "KY Kernel" flour. Although KY Kernel flour can be harder to find, it supposedly contains the secret herbs and spices from Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC). It makes a perfect blend for frying fish. You can change the blend percentage to suit your personal taste.
