thanks guy's I would have plated it to lol but it's not mine my father in law bought it and asked me to smoke it for him and since I got my smoker from him cause he bought it used it once and couldn't figure it out he gave it to me for 80 bucks and now i am hooked on it lol. So as a thank you gift I promised I wouldn't eat it

Looks great Jeff!!!


We always ground the pickeral we caught in PA for fish patties (cakes).


They were always so darn full of bones! Maybe because they were only between 18" and 25" long.


They always have nice white meat though!

thanks guy's and the bones are nuts my father in law likes them smoked cause he can just pick them apart

They sure look good Jeff. I've had smoked pickeral and they do have a lot of bones, but like your father-in-law said the meat pulls away from the bones easily when they are smoked, and they sure taste good.

Very nice, I can tell they are good without tasting.  Having said that, quality control does not constitute "eating" the meat.


Good luck and good smoking.
