I just received these pictures from a friend. Anyone else get this e-mail? Are these true? It says it was 54 inches and 44 pounds!

I seen that pic before, and it was reportedly caught in manitoba I believe. But it was proven that that was false information, and in actuality the fish was caught a few years ago in scotland or something like that.

From what I've read about the pic is that is some type of Pike caught over in the Europe/Russia area. The pic is a couple of years old. They have some other strains of pike that grow huge, or so I've read. Some cool pics though.

Thats got to be bigger than 44lbs, just look at the girth and how big the head is.

44 pounds looks about right. A 44 pound northern is gonna look bigger than a 44 pound muskie. And let's face it, not too many of us have ever seen a northern that big before.

The biggest pike I have ever seen in person is a 48" and that was huge (Canadian Fly-in). I cannot imagine a 54" especially with that girth. I would need to change my pants if that thing hit right at the boat.

No it wasn't. It was caught in Europe. I think the netherlands. Someone posted it on the mille lacs forum and it is all explained there.
