Just wanted to share some photos a friend emailed me. Evidently this huge pike, they say 56"/55lb, on Rainey Lake, grabbed ahold of a 36" pike that was being reeled in, and they were able to net them both!

Finnbay:

Thanks for the info, this was the first I had seen these, guess it took a while for them to show up in Indiana.

My son did have a similar experience on his first fly-in trip to Canada reeling in a 10lb pike and having a muskie take off with it. Never saw much of the muskie, but saw the bite marks on the pike, close to 9" across.

Those can be real exciting encounters! Great fish stories for a lifetime! Had a client on Crooked one time. Told fish stories all the way up and he was skeptical to say the least. Got set up at our camp late and had just enough time to catch 3 or 4 "eaters" for breakfast. Left them on the stringer overnight. When we pulled it in the next morning, an 8-pound pike had swallowed one and couldn't get off of the stringer. My client said "I'll never not believe another of your fish stories - up here the fish put themselves on the stringer"! grin.gifgrin.gif

I guess big fish tales never die. Nice try on your buds part to slip it by you though. Tell him April 1st is a long ways out!

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
