Huge Pike

11 posts in this topic

Just wanted to share some photos a friend emailed me. Evidently this huge pike, they say 56"/55lb, on Rainey Lake, grabbed ahold of a 36" pike that was being reeled in, and they were able to net them both!

Finnbay:

Thanks for the info, this was the first I had seen these, guess it took a while for them to show up in Indiana.

My son did have a similar experience on his first fly-in trip to Canada reeling in a 10lb pike and having a muskie take off with it. Never saw much of the muskie, but saw the bite marks on the pike, close to 9" across.

Those can be real exciting encounters! Great fish stories for a lifetime! Had a client on Crooked one time. Told fish stories all the way up and he was skeptical to say the least. Got set up at our camp late and had just enough time to catch 3 or 4 "eaters" for breakfast. Left them on the stringer overnight. When we pulled it in the next morning, an 8-pound pike had swallowed one and couldn't get off of the stringer. My client said "I'll never not believe another of your fish stories - up here the fish put themselves on the stringer"! grin.gifgrin.gif

Now that is the true definition of the term "Gator"!

Thanks for the photo!

I guess big fish tales never die. Nice try on your buds part to slip it by you though. Tell him April 1st is a long ways out!

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
