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.

Ya, the last time it cirulated around work here, the story went that it was caught in 4-mile bay on LOW last spring!! \:D

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

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
