Having caught these fish, this is something.

Musky

Mature pikes are full of very small sharp bones (similar to carp). I bet muskie is the same -- to the point of being good only for pressure cooking (it liquefies small bones) and fish-cakes.

Pike and Musky are good eating, We Don't fillet them Cook as steaks or whole if they are smaller. The meat easily pulls away from the Y bones. Some of my best memories were of pike and musky on the St Lawrence over a campfire wrapped in foil, with olive oil, fresh garlic, lemon, parsley salt and pepper. Cook until skin is charred. Open foil and eat right out of the foil as a family, skin/scales charred to the foil, pull back bone and eat. Delicious smoky taste!

Copy-paste from another forum:

Pike are very good eating, but I've never eaten a muskellunge (that's blasphemy).
The problem with pike and pickerel is that you've got to cutout a strip along the upper fillet
that contains the Y-bones, otherwise you'll have a mouthful of whisker bones.

Small pikes (~15") are delicious and Y-bones are unnoticeable. I haven't had them for more than 20 years...

That is a hoss!! I sure hope to catch one some day. For now a chain pickerel is as close as I've come.
