Yikes! I've never seen that, but have heard that it happens...

This one, when I got him in the kayak with me (not much room!) rolled like a croc, got all tangled up in the plastic sheeting I had over my lap to keep water off. What a mess it was trying to get him unwrapped! A comedy of errors. :)

You want to fish from the shore standing on skis, get a tow from a 30"+ you could have a merry ride: ) Used to see Pike take ducklings, one second they were bobbing around next thing nothing but bubbles, one after another.

Thanks Dave and Peter. Yes Peter that's a good name for them, fresh water shark! Quite the predator. We call little ones like this 'hammer handles.'

In spring when the ice first goes out, you don't want to be dangling your fingers outside the boat, they'll come up and grab them, and they DON'T let go!

I was hoping to catch a 30+ incher... would have pulled me and my kayak all around the lake in a merry chase!

Thanks for you visits Kathy, Arlene and Doerthe.


Quoting ichbinhier:
And they taste soooo good! Great photo.

My recipe: Lightly salt inside and out, a table spoon of butter in an old frying pan and cook over open fire. That's how we used to like them in the Ontario bush country. No frills, just good taste.
And that's EXACTLY what we did, and it was DELICIOUS! (just not enough)

Katy you add oil, salt and ketchup for "salmon" and leave out the ketchup for "tuna" If you are interested I will look up the recipe. To buy walleye fillets here they are about 10.00 a pound.

I'm not sorry we left MN, but I do miss the walleyes. You can't get them in any way, shape, or form around here.

Cool, Kristina! I can understnad why these fish like Sweden!

Mark, the one that got away WAS much bigger... :)

Arlene that's interesting about canning pike. That would be a good way to deal with all those Y bones. Do you add just a bit of oil?

I didn't realize they had northerns in Alaska as we have lots of them here and they are fished a lot. We prefer walleye and perch but I have canned northerns (like salmon) and they are OK that way.
