    Steve,

    Every time you say Pickerel I think Walleye, but just figured out they are actually a damn Northern Pike 'Slimers' we call'em. Tough to clean but pretty good eating as long as they aren't too big. Best through the ice, but what isn't. Ever try cooking them on lemon slices?
    Here's 2 in the box. :P

    They look good Steve, nice white flesh. Ive heard they are hard to clean.

    Bear,

    No it's walleye. I bought these cleaned but theye are pretty meaty fish. They are caught commercially in the northern part of the great lakes. Beautiful fish

    Ya my bad, I thought they where pike. Walleye are supposed to be real sweet, great eating. I don't think they sell them in the States but I could be wrong.
  • Little StevenLittle Steven Posts: 28,780
    It is the best freshwater fish there is IMHO

    Can't see the pictures, photobucket is down, but a Chain Pickerel aka Pickerel is a member of the pike family.


    A Walleye on the other hand if some of the best eating freshwater fish you will find. They do sell it, and it can often be found on restaurants around the Great Lakes.

    In the USA maybe. In Canada it's wallleye
    We call the chain pickerel grass pike

  • Hi L.S.
    I studied the manual for your camera. Set the camera setting for close up shots to the "Flower" symbol. Make sure your Autofocus setting is on AF-S. Also look on side of lens and make sure you are set on AF. Link for manual here

    Hope this helps.

    I'm not sure why us Canadians call Walleye Pickerel... but it makes for some confusion with my US fishing buddies. I actually don't know if that's a Canada wide thing, or just a southern Ontario thing? All my life it's been pickerel, until I starting working in the states, now it's Walleye - I do still mess up from time to time and call it Pickerel though.
  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 22,108
    food looks good, but lets get this straight. a pickerel is a pickerel, yes there is a fish that is a pickerel. a walleye is a walleye, and a northern pike is a pike.

    Amen fishlessman!

    All this confused the old fisherman here too. If folks actually had caught a walleye they'd understand real quick why they're called walleyes which are not related to species pickerel (pike).

    However pike and muskelunge are all members of the pickerel species. Which incidentally are some of my favorite fish to fight on the end of the line, (lots of razor sharp teeth and a really bad attitude).

    Cheers,
    Erik

    I'm with Steven. It's called a pickerel. Yellow pickerel actually. It is a Southern Ontario (Lake Erie) thing though. Elsewhere it's called a Walleye and the proper name is Walleye, but I could care less. It's a pickerel to me as I was born in S. Ont. A chain pickerel is a pike, a Northern pike is a pike, grass pike is a pike and so on. Love pike and musky fishing, but they don't taste like a pickerel.

    Here's a recipe! I prefer it battered and go exclusively to Pork Burwell for my pickerel and perch.

    For the record, the best fish to eat is a yellow perch. Bar none. Pickerel (Walleye) is up there, but can't touch a yellow perch. Perca flavensens (something like that). I went to the School of Natural Resources in Ontario and it pained me to have to call a Yellow pickerel a walleye. LOL. Dang non southern Ontarians.

    Shane,

    Bought these at Zehrs. We have a guy here at work who fishes them regularly but the weather has been so bad he hasn't been out.
