Chain pickerel

Caught my very first chain pickerel aka "jackfish" tonight on a Rebel Crawfish lure. 15" snout to tail.

Took all of three minutes to clean him...could push scales off with my thumb.

I understand pickerel is a very sweet tasting fish albeit VERY bony just like northern pike and walleye.

I used to catch them all the time in the lake near where I grew up. Still live near there.
Nice fighting fish, lot's of teeth and they are boney. We never kept many unless they were up about 25" and a couple of pounds. That puts a bit more meat on all those bones.

IN RE bony. Northern Pike (and Pickerel) si; Walleye no. Walleyes yield a pair of meaty, white-fleshed, delicious and boneless filets.
