6 lbs. of pike fillets (cut into 4'' pieces)
white vinegar to cover, plus 1 quart
2/3 cup of salt
2 1/2 cups of sugar
2 tablespoons of pickling spice (tied up in a cloth)
sliced onions

Put the fillets in a large glass bowl and cover with salt and mix; then add white vinegar until the fish is completely submersed. Cover and put in fridge, stirring each day for 7 days. Pour off liquid and rinse fish. Boil sugar, quart of vinegar and pickling spice for 5 minutes then set aside to cool completely, removing spice bag when cool. Pack fish in layers in a jar alternating with the sliced onion. Pour the cooled brine over the fish and onions and store in fridge. Serve with crackers or whatever.

It's pretty tasty. Works well with Pike because they're a bony fish and by the time the fillets are done soaking in the vinegar, it's dissolved all the bones.

I read this recipe or a similar one recently in an outdoor magazine. Just got back from Minnesota and my parents will be bringing back around 10 pounds of pike with them that we caught while there. Might have to try this recipe out. Definitely will post again if I try it.
