I've never eated walleye. I've never even caught one. But I've eaten tons of yellow perch. Are they similar in taste? They look like they're closely related.

Perch is good table fare but walleye is superb! It's the best freshwater fish I have ever eaten. Can't go wrong with either but those eyes are in a class of their own!

Thanks. That sounds great. Perch is pretty good, but a little plain. Sounds like walleye will not disappoint.

We're heading up to Quebec this June and will be walleye fishing all week.

You won't be dissapointed I promise! If you guys wanna try your hand at Walleye fishing look up TrophyDreamCatcher.com and give Capt. Rick Miick a call. He does trips on Lake Oneida as well as all other fishing tactics in upsate NY including Salmon, and drift trips for Steelhead on the Salmon River. Hes a good friend and one of the best up there. Featured in magazines and has a fishing show on a local station up there. Specializes in Center pinning. Tell him I told ya to call...:thumbsup:

Plenty of good walleye spots around us. You gotta do your homework though. ;)

Walleyes are better table fare, by far. You gotta eat the small ones (legal to about 22 inches). They are way better than the bigger ones.

I love both, but I give the nod to walleye. Still, I think both are trumped by bluegill.
