Ok STF..I will give it to you, they are very good. Although I donlt know that I would turn my nose up at walleyes over them. I certainly will be looking ofward to catching more of them though.

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

      Popped down for half hour to check a spot this morning and only one showed up for a pic. Water is up 2 feet from 2 weeks ago. Hope to try a spot north of town tuesday.

      Ok, so all the biologists, scientists, and compiled data is wrong and you're right.  Lets rape and pillage the lake until there's absolutely nothing left.  Great idea tfin.  In fact, maybe when the walleyes are all gone we should harvest all the muskies, smallmouth bass, and pike in the lake too.  And then blame the DNR for it.  Go fly a kite

      I was out 2 weeks ago from today and it was still pretty good.  Water temp was 54.  I don't plan to go again now because my boat is winterized.  My Father said it has been miserable the past week because the water got so cold so quick.  It looks decent this week for weather but deer season is fast approaching so I have to prepare for that now.

      No ice in Stuntz Bay yet but I did lift the boat out of the water onto the boathouse deck.  Easy to drop it back in if the water is soft after I get my deer.

      I took a trip this August to Buffalo River State Park to wade in the river while hitting the holes. My brother and I caught a variety of fish from red horse and chubs to a clam. All fish were caught on worm chunks. This spring/summer I want to use my new 5wt fly road and see what I catch
    • monstermoose78
      Let’s get them 22-27 inch fish out of the lake

      I think anybody can see that the food/forage base is or has declined in Mille lacs.......having a lot of large fish doesn't help it at all. I think they should thin the herd.

      Well was a sad day today indeed. Got the kayak all vacuumed out and cleaned up. Then hung it in it’s winter spot in the shed. Trailer got a cleaning to. But until next year so long open water. Time to finish putting the open water gear away and finish getting the ice gear out.

      10/21/18     I have hunted in the Hutchinson area the last two weekends with my Dad, son, and some friends. Dakota ducks are trickling through central MN as the calendar migration has begun. With strong NW blows before or during the past two weekends, we have harvested mallards, gadwalls, redheads, bluebills, canvasbacks, and ringnecks, as well as a couple of geese hunting from a boat blind on some shallow lakes. This calendar migration should continue over the next couple weeks whenever we can get a strong NW or West wind. It will take some more cold and frozen water in Canada to get the big Canadian birds to come down--hopefully that happens before Thanksgiving. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Snow?  Yeah I finally ran into some today.     And I HAD to get them on the tailgate! 😅   And that is one of the reasons to leave that stuff in MN for a little while.  😎
