What Kind of Fish is This?

What kind of a fish is this?  Anyone know?


I caught it up in Northern Michigan, near Cheboygan, in the Black River (I think it was).  That’s where we were on vacation the last week and a few days.


This fish was 17.5 inches long, and I’m not sure exactly how many pounds.  This guy told me it was a walleye.  But I thought it was a bass.  That was why I told my wife only to cook part of it, since I don’t know anything about fishing, but I heard that bass are not tasty.


However it tasted really good.  This guy said it was a walleye, but it didn’t really look like pictures of walleye.  But then it didn’t really look like the pictures of bass I saw either.


I had a few other Hemingway fishing moments up in Michigan, but I’ll tell those later.  This was the first half decent size fish I ever caught in my life.
