I smoke the ones I catch out of Lake Michigan in the spring. They are pretty good, but don't hold a candle to smoked brown trout or steelhead ! I've caught a lot of northern pike on the smaller ones ( 6-10" ).

Ever try using green willow branches to wrap them in and cook over a small fire?
My late father said all it needed was salt, good eating as the flesh peels away from bones.
I was a teenager and hungry/ so I tryed it was good.
