Ooohh...... Is that ever a regional can of wroms!!!

Around here, no member of the pike family is classified as a walleye. The Walleye itself is a member of the perch family, and is also related to the sauger. Other than both having teeth, they bear no resemblence to pike.

However, both can be darned tasty!!

The perch family is a large one, with about 140 species in North America alone. The walleye (Stizostedion vitreum) is a close relative of the yellow perch, sauger and the darters. It is known by many common names such as pickerel, yellow pickerel, yellow walleye, pike perch, wall-eyed pike, walleye pike and core.
