    Pickeral are like small pike.

    Miss taking the boat into George Lake for pike. It was always an adventure getting up that creek. I guess it made the fish taste better. Use to fillet them and fry them over the camp fire with some lemon pepper on them.

    #1 though would have to be Mr Walley.

    My wife also makes a mean salmon chowder that I miss. Anyone got an extra salmon they want to mail me?

    Main I miss fishing Pickeral, grew up on them, but I guess those big pike will have to do :grvn

    Walleye are hard to beat.

    B52-man, no brook trout. Arctic Char are a very close relatives to them and are similar in taste. And the nice thing is finding bigger ones (over 20") is easier than brookies.

    Porkchop, I would mail you some salmon, but it is crazy on how much it cost to ship it. I mailed one small 15lbs fish back for a client, cost $80 :eek: Maybe in winter would not be so bad, ship it slower. Now I just mail smoked fish back.

    Not a big fish eater- but my favorite is yellow perch (don't think they are in AK) caught ice fishing! Fry those filets up and man - that's good eating! Close second would be Walleye!
    Hopefully I'll get a crack at a silver next year I'm up!

    I will take you on a cast and blast, mostly casting but there may be a little blasting. We can catch them into October now.
