My guide told me while he was cleaning my fish that many people don't keep Pike because they don't know how to get the bones out , but I sat right there and watched him do it .
He said a lot of people will just give him their Pike catch !
He said his Dad says once you eat Pike , Walleyes will be just trash fish
Noon today I had a mess of Perch Mmmm
When I was young my aunt and uncle had a home in Grand Marie Minnesota which is about 40 miles south of the Canadian border. I used to go up there in the early summer and go walleye fishing and trout fishing. If they ever caught a large northern or muskie the would give it to the natives and the natives would grind it up and make fish sticks out of it. That is all that I know about cleaning and fixing pike. Walleye and perch are relatives.
