Was out fishing today for a couple hours. Lost a few right at the hole but i did manage to bring some thing home. One lake trout 6 lbs and one jack fish 9 lbs. Every thing was on the jigging rod today.

I cant wait for ice fishing! We havent really had many real cold days/nights here in NH so the ice is taking forever this year. I actually just got back from checking the lake down the road from my house and we have about 6 -8 inches so Im hoping to go sunday! Nice pics

Yes we call them by many names, hammer handles, snake's, northern, jack fish and pike.I don't keep any to eat as i do not care for the taste compared to the trout or walleye ( pickerel ). This one i kept for a friend. Some times i will take one too make pickled fish. In the winter the meat is more firm compared to one caught in the summer and does not have the sick smelling slime on it.

I don't mind northern, although I agree with you that walleye is better. I like pickled northern but have only had it a few times. I do "poor man's lobster" with northern by throwing chunks in boiling water and barely letting it cook and then dip it in drawn butter. I think it taste pretty good.

I'll eat a lot of different types of fish, sometimes a person has to work around some colored meat on it. I cooked up a pan full of freashwater drum (called sheephead around here) one time. Didn't think they were too bad. I grew up eating a lot of fried bullhead (still don't minding skinning them if they have a good size to them). The kids caight a mess load of white (silver) bass this Labor Day. The wally purists at the state cleaning table at the lake sort of looked down at me for cleaning them there but if a person cuts off the red latteral line meat and batter them up with crushed Ritz crackers, I think they're pretty tasty. I like good smoked carp. Will eat it cold with crackers.

you gotta watch them pikes too. they got about a million and one bones in there. theres a real trick to cleaning them. and you STILL gotta watch for the bones that sneak through. there the kind of bones that get lodged in your throat! trust me....its not fun. lol
