    Just had a great walleye dinner and a couple of Winsor cokes...ummmm, but really I like cold water pike as well. I would love to catch a bunch up in AK. :clap :p

    Here in Idaho we don't have that many walleye but we do have a few, and they are the best. A very close second is old Mr. wiskers kitty fish.

    About the only thing as good as a walleye dinner is a halibut dinner. Not much for fresh water fishing here on the island. A few trout in the lakes and a few dollies, but that's it. When I lived on the Mississippi in WI I would usually go walleye fishing after an evening of duck hunting. Always a decent night to bag 3 or 4 ducks and as many 4-5lb "eyes" in a couple hours.

    Sorry to hear you guys don't have walleye. It's a member of the perch family. Best tasting fresh water fish anywhere. Went back to MN and Canada and brought back a bunch. Wife said I can go back anytime I want after tasting the fish.

    You know your getting spoiled when you dont particularly care for halibut anymore. I actually will take a rockfish over halibut filet up here anymore. Thats bad.

    Rockfish?!!? Yes, that is bad!!! :D
    I still like halibut, but I have finally learned to hate King Crab. :eek:
    On the flip side I've learned to like salmon. Actually if its cooked right I prefer it to walleye now. Halibut enchiladas are hard to beat though. Man I'm hungry now.

    I would head to the Kenai or Russian River. Crowded but a lot of fish after about July 15.
    Some of the other guys fish the Wasilla area and may be able to better fill you in about that area. You may also want to start a thread with that question.
