Not Much For Pictures, Will Be Tasty
I wish I could say that I caught this large northern pike today, but I did not. A young fellow who is a good angler and a good baseball player in addition to being an all-around good athlete caught this pike. Neither he nor his granddad wanted the fish and offered it to me. Of course I accepted their generosity.
When a person cleans a northern properly – to eliminate the “Y” bones – the meat is hard to beat. In fact, northern pike is one of my favorite fish to eat. Their slimy skin and bone structure make then less than desirable for many, even though they are delicious to eat.
You can see how big this fish was based on the size of the fish compared to my hand.
Thanks for the fish!
