I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or recipes as to what to do with them. I'd think they'd taste alot like a northern, but I'm not sure.
I was thinking pickled pickerel, just cause it sounds cool :)
Agreed, send them up here if you don't want them. I just smoked 3 fillets, salt pepper and garlic powder, no brine. 2 hours at 200, used cherry. Turned out great. little or No bones if they're cleaned properly
why do so many people call walleye, pickerel? pickerel is a whole different fish. theyre in the same family as walleye and pike. but they are a little boney so most people don't eat them. for some reason people in Canada call walleyes pickerel but I never understood why.
