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.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
