HELP! I can't get a good flavor on smoking of fresh water bass

Hi this is coco, down here in Yuma camping on the Colorado River. I am Enjoying catching all these large mouth bass, and they are yummy, but I can't find a recipe that tastes good for the smoker. The recipes that call for a brine seem to taste too salty and dry no matter how low and slow I cook it. Is there some other recipe where you can just marinade in something yummy but not too overpowering for this light white fish. At home I smoke salmon and oysters and they can take on a heavy teriyaki, brown sugar type recipe but not this fish. If I can't get this recipe good ,I will just buy a m/h freezer, I have to get this fish home someway. Thanks to anyone that can help. COCO
