I'll take a Laker over Salmon for eating.3or4 meals of salmon a year is enough for me. Eyes are still my favorite.

Eyes and Crappies for me. Nothing wrong with a Coho either. My wife loves salmon but Im not a big Laker fan unless smoked.

No matter what fish I love catching them. I know Cheffrey has some killer Laker and Salmon recipes. I need to get his Salmon Spread recipe thats awesome! tongue.gif

Iam with Northlander on this one. Walleyes and panfish taste the best I think. I do like small salmon in the pan. All my lakers go in the smoker except I might steak and grill one. Just don't care for them in the pan.

Jeez, maybe you guys down on Superior are just spoiled, and all your lakers are the giant yellow greaseball siscowet strain, which are good for three things: Tree and shrub fertilizer, sled dog food or the smoker.

Seriously, if you take a redfin (lean) laker of about 2 pounds (Burntside's full of 'em), fillet it like a walleye, roll it in a mix of half fryin magic and half shore lunch breading, and fry it in oil alongside a walleye and compare . . . mmmmmmm. grin.gif

Of course, this from the guy who throws in a handful of rock bass fillets when fixing sunny and crappie, and watching everyone at the table gulp them all down and throw compliments to the cook. In fact, on several occasions I've fixed 75 percent rockie fillets and only 25 percent sunny and crappie, and watched rock bass "haters" expound on how much better all that fish tasted than rock bass. (I'd insert an evil grin smilie here, but FM doesn't have one available).

I'm just back from a BWCA trip into Knife, Kek, Fraser, Ima, etc....with an experienced Laker guy and we cuaght lakers everyday (my first) and filleted up the 2-3 pounders right along with the Walleye's and I have to say that the laker was mighty fine...in fact I uttered the words, "this might be my new favorite fish....". I can't wait to go back in after some laker so I can pan fry them baby's!

Its pretty hard to beat the Red Fin strain. No breading and fried in butter, yum. smallieobsession, I hear ya on the Thomas lakers they're ever bit as good as LS Red Fins.

Steve,

Not surprised at all that you scarf down Rock Bass. Apparently the Trout have destroyed your taste buds laugh.gif

Sure Brule, I've had baked and broiled trout many a time, but we generally use those methods for the larger lakers and pan fry the small ones like walleye. grin.gif

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
