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

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!
