Greetings from a new member. A friend of mine catches suckers by the washtubful in April coming out of Lake Superior and smokes them. I expect to go with him and have been looking at pickling and canning recipes. I haven't had suckers since i was a kid, but except for the bones, they were good fish. I'm hoping the bones will be taken care of in canning & pickling. I am always looking for recipes that do not contain sugar since I have no sweet tooth at all and don't care for any sweet taste.
