    Pretty lousy article if it doesn’t even mention the Grass and Redfin pickerel.

    I’ve fished a lot for pickerel and thro the pike back, slimy boney bastards. I’ve never seen a pike with the large sharp Dorsel Fin that’s on the pickerel

      That’s because you are thinking a walleye is a pickerel and it is not.

    We’ve been fishing pike and pickerel (walleye) on Georgian Bay for more than 35 years. While pickerel are easier to fillet because of the pike’s Y-bone, pike always wins the taste test. One of the reasons for this is that a pike will not bottom feed and eat dead food like a pickerel. Hence, the pike’s flesh is whiter, cleaner and better tasting than the pickerel’s.
