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

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
