Monster pike out of canada.

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone seen the pictures of the 55lb pike, out of Rainy lake Canada? Yes I said 55 pounds, no typo. I have pictures but dont know how to post them. A guy was fighting a 36" pike when this railroad tie grabed hold of the fish crossways an the guy was able to bring it along boatside an net them both. It's as big as any muskie I've seen. Unflippinbelieavable. Whis I could post them, somebody out there has to have them I could e-mail them to some one who knows how. Boar

Yo Boar that photo has circulated round the WWW for about 2 years now and I'd imagine it's been seen by most. Been posted on various FM forums many times. The Whale of a Pike was caught in Europe supposedly as the story goes.

yes definitely out of Europe, I beleive Holland. There was even an article in In-Fisherman about the world record Pike that are caught in some of the European lakes, following this picture being "released" to the internet. Definitely not Rainy Lake.

Ahhhhh, one of those stories eh'. I have seen the In Fisherman issue you mentioned. Reminded me of the 18lb walleye that was caught in Saskatcatchuwan {whatever} in Lake Tobin an was circulated on the net that it came from LOW. Still an awsome fish though. Boar

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
