Tried Ice fishing once , never caught a single fish but lost plenty of hooks , from experiments can tell you that trolling from a ski-doo just doesn't work !!

It was just shy of 18 lbs. and fed 9 people. Tasted great- you can't beat cold water fish. :)

Found a way to fillet them cutting off 5 pieces. It works really well.


The "y" bones on this fish were as thick as the ribs on a bass so easy to find.

Cooked

Actually the best time to remove the Y bones is after their cooked . Just run a dull knife all the way down the bones and the separate out very easy!
