Someone found this last Saturday floating on Lake Andrew. It appears a 7 pound northern pike thought it could master a 40 inch muskie.Turns out the muskie got caught about 8 inches down the northern's throat causing both fish to die.

I have no idea where the photo was taken. Someone emailed it to me. I can't guarantee how legit it is.

Could be just about anywhere. I seen this on another site and it was labeled as coming from the Cass/Leach area.

Pretty crazy when we see pics like this, it's just nuts. I suppose my eating habits would rival that since I quit smoking, thank god for a high metabolism. haha

Looks to me like some photo shop magic. Look at the guys left hand it just seems like it is hanging out there. I say it's a fake.

I think there's another kid behind the guy, that's the little hand you see hanging there. You can see the kid's head under the guy's left arm pit.

I have no idea if its real or not but the northerns spots are not near as faded as the muskies skin. It looks to me like one fish died before the other.

I guess it could also have been that the muskie was almost dead when the northern attacked.

I'm with you Harvey. It seems that in the picture the Musky is already a little stiff without any belly sag or bend and the northern is still flexible.

My theory is that the muskie was dead and the northern was recently caught and they were put together to make the pic. IMO

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
