Caught the same pike twice!

Recommended Posts

Went over to the Trempleau float today and caught about a 5-6 lb pike running cranks close to shore. I had given the fish away and the guy accidently dropped the stringer and fish in the water before tying stringer down. About 4 hrs. laters, Honest to God, I threw just a simple lindy,(out about 30 yards-give or take in the main channel), and got a womp right off the bat. Fought it back and had, luckily, the hook right at end of lip. Netted another pike which happenned to be the exact same pike, due to the fact that the stringer was still attached. Was a pretty cool thing to happen!

That is pretty cool. Years ago I hooked into a pike with a rapala, snapped the line. About 20 minutes later my dad caught the same pike, rapala still intact. Crazy how that works.

I have retrieved several crappie jigs by throwing a spinnerbait or rapala out right after getting bitten off.

i've heard somewhere that fish's brains are so small they only have like a 20-30 second memory, could be true or false i guess, but it would explain catching the same fish twice???

I've heard that too...I think the time span depends on the fish...I've heard bass can remember things for up to 15 minutes. When I was a kid I caught the same smallie 3 or 4 times in a span of a couple hours...I knew it was the same one because he kept hanging around the dock (kinda' like he was sick or something).

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early.

      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....
