Hi There…In Canada we have many “slang” names for the walleye. The “yellow pickerel” is one of the “slang” names for the walleye. Technically a walleye is part of the perch family and the pickerel is part of the pike family. There are several species of pickerel, which look like a small pike; American Pickerel, Redfin Pickerel, Grass Pickerel, & Chain Pickerel…….God bless you, Italo
