Something Fishy

Why didn't the Maharshal eat fish on Rosh Hashana?

The Mogen Avraham (O.Ch.597) quotes from the Bach , that the Maharshal didn’t eat any fish on Rosh Hashana because he loved to eat fish, and wanted to minimize his Ta’avos.

In the Bach on the Tur it is slightly different than the way the Mogen Avraham quotes him. The Bach says that the Maharshal writes he has a Kabalah from his grandfather who didn't eat fish on R.H. to reduce his Ta’avos.
