I built a smoker out of an old camping BBQ and some sheet metal. Isn't the prettiest, but it does the trick. Plus it cost me less that $30 to make! I take between 3 and 4 hours to smoke my fish, depending on the size, but the end result is worth the wait.
A bad day of fishing beats anything else I'd be doing today.....

I love smoked fish...any kind....I did not like baked whites...seemed greasy...

I am Looking to make an old file cabinet into a smoker.

It's a four drawer....I am a handy cat.

Any suggestions?

None of the white's I caught last year on Sylvan had worms. I've always been under the impression that it tends to be a problem that is contained to certain lakes, not entire species. I do know that that there is a part of the fish's guts that looks like a bunch of worms when you gut them, it kinda freaked me out the first time, but I later found out that it is normal to the fish.

Extra protein, especially when eaten as Sushi... ;D ;D
Found that alot of the larger Whites have worms in Lakes like MacGregor and Gull. Have not seen any for Sylvan, but then again, these are smaller Whites being caught. Lots of info available such as this one:

hahaha i did try fresh smoked sucker in northern sask and tasted pretty good! just didnt like the thought of eating sucker especially when we were hammering so many walleyes on the ice.

whites are tasty from my smoker but any that have worms are wasted :tipup:

off topic but yeah its illegal, this is from the regs....I dont know what you're supposed to do if you discover your fish is diseased. call F&W and ask i guess.


The edible flesh of legally kept game fish must not be wasted, destroyed, spoiled or abandoned.

Bait Fish may be used in waters that do not have bait bans or bait fish restrictions. Where fishing with bait fish is prohibited, other baits including smelts, herring, gammarus shrimp and dead fish eggs (e.g., preserved “salmon eggs”) may be used, provided a bait ban is not in effect for that water body.

NOTE: Smelts and herring are of the saltwater families Osmeridae and Clupeidae. Use of the freshwater species cisco (Coregonidae), also called tullibee or lake herring, is prohibited from use as bait.



ps dont shoot the messenger  :-\.....peace

and if ever catch a whitefish ....bring out the smoker!

I'm not a fish cop so don't quote me but the first part of the above section states  "The edible flesh..." therefore I would say that a fish full of parasites could be considered "inedible". Throwing away or disposing of parasitic fish should theoretically not be against the law. Again I'm not proposing that everyone start throwing away wormy fish on my say so but personaly I would do it & challenge a charge on those grounds if it became an issue. I've been hospitalised before due to food borne disease & I can tell you that no one can convince me that cooking up some parasitic worms will make it okay.

On a less contraversial note, smoking is definately the best way to enjoy a few nice whities!
I fish therefore I am...

Smoke them.  They are a problem to keep lit, but depending on the paper, you can toke them down to a roach.  Seriously, I smoke them with Saskatoon wood.  I have tried a lot of other woods for smoke, but have settled on Saskatoon.

Good day,
Good to see more albertan's on here .I've been hovering on here for a couple years but still am a new member.
HELLO!

Regarding the parasites in whites:
The worm like structure inside the fish cavity is part of their digestive tract.
The parasites in the flesh are NOT harmful to humans, but are unsightly, cut them out before you cook if you wish.
Cooking well done so to speak, can't hurt, just like other meat.
There is a very good article in either western sportsman or alberta outdoorsman about this.
I will try to find it and report back.
I'm sure if we knew about the tiny parasites in most food, many people would stop eating ;D, it's just  that we can see these.
Hope this helps and good to talk to you all
Ken
