How does the Pike taste, in comparison to my favorite freshwater fish, the Walleye? Def a lot more meat on the pike. You guys have caught some real brutes!

I just caught my first Walleye here a couple weeks ago, and fried him up for dinner. My wife and 3 year old neice LOVED IT. I hadn't had a walleye for dinner in probably 20 years, when my Dad caught one on a fluke grin

Pike, IMHO are every bit as good as walleye, provided they are cooked fresh ....
The "Y" bones are a bit of a learning curve but you can get past that.
Nice white flaky meat...excellent done "Canadian Shore Lunch" style...

Went out last night again, got skunked. I am hoping to find me some Pike to eat soon smile. I'm heading to the largest lake in CO next weekend, the big Blue Mesa res. Nice lakers, Bows, and hopefully some Kokanee grin

Just noticed this thread, great photos guys smile

My one encounter with a member of the pike family was a chain pickerel in Lake Caddo, Tx. He hit a floating frog while I was bass fishing. Didn't hook him but he left a double row of tooth marks in the lure.

There was a notorious case in Lake Davis, California where someone decided the lake needed northerns, and apparently stocked them in the lake without authorization. The lake was well known for trophy rainbows, and there was much concern the pike would eat the 'bows. Also concern if they got over the dam they could make it into the Sacramento Delta, where it would be impossible to eradicate them. The lake was eventually drained far down and poisoned to ensure the total removal of the pike. The original cuplrit was never identified.

I need to go visit my sis in Minnesota and catch me some pike smile Looks like a blast!

Cuz & I were on local lake last eve. throwing Johnsons for snakes. I deflowered my 7 1/2' medium Reaction Strike, Cardiff 200, 50# Power Pro rig, hooking up with a 24" or so pike. I sure do like this rig, hopint to get into bigger muskie and pike later this year. 83 surface water. Had some follows, bumps & misses. Good time. Great thread, thanks ND.
