M8 Infra Red Issue

Absolutely! But we caught it ourselves (Northern Michigan/Ontario area or out west). It's a great game fish, one of best as it fights hard and has very sharp teeth. It's tasty but full of bones, so wouldn't be a restaurant favorite. Too many customers would choke to death...giving the restaurant a bad rep and all.

 

Cheers, Doug

 

My father used to fish for trout but invariably would catch large Pike......

 

They have a large very sharp tooth, and a horrible bite. They are as visicous as hell, play dead when caught and landed into a boat and then attack people in the boat. They will attack people paddling in a river......and yes they are certainly a game fish.

The Germans love flaking it and mixing with potatoes etc and serving as a tasy meatball come dumpling...it is a great delicacy. It is a very tasty fish cooked any style you like, but is difficult and maybe impossible to farm as it eats its young, and any other fish around.

Pike?

 

Hands up if you've ever eaten pike

 

 

I've eaten all the rest, but never pike. I've never even seen it offered in a restaurant or market, either. Perhaps I go to all the wrong places

 

I have eaten pike many times.Usually after catching it myself.Lots of good recipes in older style fishing books.Lots of thin bones.

Yes, all the north americans who've ever fished know Pike--they're nasty but fine eating, because if you catch one big enough you can fillet it without "cleaning" and then the bones are not an issue.

 

Northern pike - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

They're not as good as what we call (mistakenly, according to wikipedia!) Pickerel (my favourite fish barbecued!). The US (and wikipedia) calls them Yellow pike or Walleye or Walleye pike. Of course, they taste just as good--and nothing like Pike--no matter what you call them and look much different.

 

Walleye - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

As for being on topic--of *course* you can fix the original file in PS. When I get a chance I'll take a cut, but just Google replace colour for Photoshop. Just replace the magenta on the coals with a nice orange range and it'll look like bbq again

 

BTW--if you want to boat a really, really nasty fish, try catching one of these:

 

Muskellunge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

I caught one of these once, and It took me the better part of an hour to land, and it was only a small one (just over 4 feet

)

There's something fishy about this thread.

 

Can you fix the purple haze on the sausages as well?

Not sure you'd want to frequent this establishment in Hastings, on the Sussex coast - either for a pike supper or in search of the company of kindred spirits. And no, it's not boarded up and derelict - it looks like that all the time as that's what passes for 'kerb appeal' in this run-down resort. There's probably a reason why I was hiding behind the armoured protection of a huge Agave...

I agree ....actually adapters if I could find the right one would cost about 50€ anyway. So tomorow I order the proper thing.

First opportunity this weekend to try out the new Noctilux and it certainly floods the sensor with IR - lots of washed out greens. Filter essential...

"The Pike Family Restaurant": I'd be disappointed if Sergeant Wilson wasn't the maitre d'hotel and the waiter wasn't a "stupid boy".

"The Pike Family Restaurant"...

There are all manner of possibilities, Pete. This eaterie could indeed be staffed by the Pikes; or maybe the speciality of the house is a mean Esox lucius & Chips; or maybe the ultra-sophisticated branding is an attempt to lure passing shell-suit familes of a pikey persuasion. Who can say? Looks worryingly downmarket to me, whatever!

According to Yell.com, it's a Halal fish & Chip shop.

Halal pike???! Good work, Nicole. Nothing like local knowledge (gleaned from the Netherlands!)

 

It does help that I'm from Eastbourne though.

Interestingly Pike is kosher (Gefilte Fish) which is more or less "equal" to halal as far as I know, in terms of what is or isn't allowed.

 

Interesting where an non-filtered noctilux picture brings us:D
