I have never smoked walleye, but when lightly breaded and fried, pan fried, or baked they are delicious!

Good luck Ken!
IMHO, I would not smoke all of your catch! So many other options. Pan fried is my favorite, but you can also cook it on the grill, or bake it. Walleye is one of the best eating fish and it would be a shame to smoke it all, just saying!

ok thanks I have never had it before and looking for options. Normally we catch and release everything but I've always heard the lake Erie walleye are good to eat. Who knows maybe we can have a good day and get some perch also.

I vacuum seal and freeze my fish. When time comes the wife will take some out and smoke it. She makes a dang good smoked fish dip.

My wife would like to know if your wife would share her smoked dip recipe. If so you can Pm it to me. Thanks

She is already drooling over what to do with the fish my daughter and I haven't even caught yet.

A few days ago a member posted a pic of a cooler full of walleyes caught on crawler harnesses in about 50-53’ of water, but you didn’t hear it from me 😉😂

The better the fish, the better they are smoked!

Walleye is great many ways. One of the best batter fried fish there is, and that is also true of pan frying, grilling, or baking.

Good luck and good eats!

Our captain was catching the limit every day back around the end of June using crawler harness. But July 2nd he wouldn't take us out due to conditions. So we are trying it again. He took us to a point to show us how bad it was then pointed out where he anticipated fishing. off an Island several miles out. I checked this morning and 0-1 foot waves and wind under 6 knots all day . So it Should be a better day

And I could bet that it was Bass Island, a couple miles off Put In Bay.

This breading is hard to beat as is a good ole beer batter
I dry brine walleye and smoke from time to time. Very good
Also try marinading a couple fillets in
Leinekugel Summer Shandy for 2 hours.
Pat dry, brush with a little melted butter and dust with Lemmon pepper
Grill 4 minutes per side and squeeze fresh lemon half way thru.
