Thanks for that info John!

not sure about those dates right now but not as familiar with the north part lake above the edwardsville bridge...i have gone up there a few miles before for crappie but also have caught pike near the bridge as well, but rollaway bay is well known for northern pike which is in the area south of the state boat launch but really for northerns you could almost find them anywhere near weed areas...but also around the islands across from the launch usually hold some decent smb....walleye around the bridge area as well...if we can't connect..good luck....email me at jforo3281948@yahoo.com and i can send you my phone no.

John-Going up to Black Lake September  12-16 about 5 weeks away ,cant wait .I need to talk with you man , any advice or knowledge you could pass on to me would be much appreciated .I'll be up there with Brother Greg ,his son Orrin and  our nephew Tim . We are staying at Black Lake Marine Cottages on the West side of the lake about 3 or so miles North of  the bridge.It would be great if we met face up to face up there .Thanks for your reply!

John , did I ask you if you've fished Black Lake NY? I am going up there mid September for the 1st time .Hoping for good Pike Fishing as well as Largies and Smallies! AND eater Perch, Walleye Crappie

I gotta learn too Dick , thanks John ! What I usually do is get the back strap and two fillets from tail to back of Dorsal fin .A lot of boneless  meat on those three pieces off a 22" Pickerel. The sides I don't mind at all making Fish Cakes out of by crunching in a blender . Still I gotta learn to fillet the bones out or I won't feel like a real Fisherman!

Comment by John Foro on August 6, 2018 at 4:04pm

Check youtube....many different ways to fillet northerns..i fillet them..cut mest off skin then trim y bones out...that method works for me. pickerrel same but few extra bones near tai....both are awesome eating.

Comment by dick tabbert on August 6, 2018 at 8:17am

They taste good but like I said the bones and since I never learned how to fillet one properly I sorta stay away from then all together now.
