Bit off more than he could chew!

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

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
