Yep thats what it was like "fish jerky" and as I remember i liked the thinner areas and the drier the better.
My grandparents on Deerisle used to make it. Layer it up with salt in a wooden barrel, I don't remember how long and then hang it on a clothes line to dry. How I remember and long for that smell in that garage, no other place like it. I think it was made with the smaller fish.
I have tried the box stuff, and not the same as eating it off the skin. Perhaps its the extra flavor the flys give it or maybe grandma's touch.

That fish and those donuts she used to make are 2 things that I will never forget, and may never eat again.

I had a lot of left overs from my filletts this spring frommy trip on the bunny clark (120lbs fillets EPIC day) and tried my hand at making some in a dehydrator and it workd well. Marrinate salt and dry over night. I saw the packs of jerky in the story for $4.50 and figured I could do it better and cheeper. Cheep yes but I have to be honest I love cod and pollok but wow is it fishy when you dry it out lol. I highly doubt i'll do it again
