Where did you get that leelte thing for Show & Tell? We do it differently--remove fillets- skin fillets-then remove Y bones from each fillet--hard to explain without pics though- we end up with 6 pcs.

I've used the 6-piece method as well.

The tail section from the Anus back is bone free.....2-pieces
the lower half of each fillet (below the lateral line) is bone free...2-pieces
and the "Y"s are found in the upper fillet and with a bit of pratice they are cut out by feeling them and sliding the knife along tham.  Usually a 3/16 thisk piece of meat is lost and you have 6 pieces bone free!

I might add that Northern Pike is excellent table fare and pike 4- 6 pounds seem to be the best

you're sure right about that! check the recipe section for TasunkaWitko's house pretzel fish recipe. i've tried it on pike and it is one of my favorites!

Another good way to cook pike is to boil them. i know it sounds gross at first but give it a try.

 

put pike fillets in water and bring to a hard boil. Reve fish and dscard the water. Replace water and finish cooking. 

Now the secret: Let cool and then use boilled fish with a cocktail sause that includes horseradish , put on a bed of lettuce and enjoy a prairie version of shrimp cocktail.
