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

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
