Me and my buddy matt went out on a local lake today (which shall remain unnamed) to fish for crappies and perch.

what we ended up catching were some true pigs.

My buddy caught this old girl. on 4 lb test and a crappie minnow. after a 15 min. fight we had her on the ice.

a half hour later I caught this fish on my identical crappie set up. It may be the same one, but Im not sure.

both (or the same as they were nearly identical in size)were released after a few quick pictures.

chadwick,

Congrats on the job well done. I'm not able to open the photos at this time but it sounds like a nice catch. Did you get a measurement or weight?

We didnt get an exact measurement, beacuse we only had a tweleve inch ruler. it was abit over 37 with out the tail pinch. Its girth was huge though. It was definatly over 15 lbs. If I had wanted, I could have made two fists and put both of them in its mouth.

great fish. that is one benefit of catching them on tackle instead of a spear. it makes CPR alot easier on the fish. its nice to know they are there and that you can get back and catch that fish again.

a few years ago, a guy caught a nice musky here in the metro tournament. its lips had been scarred from a previous catching and it was a very distinctive fish. the next year his girlfriend caught the same fish in the tournament.

By closely looking at the fish's markings in both photos, they seem to match up. But I don't know, why would a fish that size be fooled twice by the same set up in one day?

because he's a pike! grin.gif

I've caught the same pike twice within an hour several times during the summer, I can see it happening through the ice, especially with live bait.

It took 15-20 minutes to get 'er on the ice the first time, second she only made one run and was out of the hole. Here are the measurements, kinda makeshift but here it is...

Nice!

I've caught the same pike twice in the same day with tip-ups. It's happened several times over the years.

to better put the size of that fish into perspective, the "keeper" fish that the big one is being measured on top of was 25 inches.

after closer identification, it is cartainly the same fish. the scar on the mouth gives it away. not to smart of a fish. that explains why it was so much easier to get in the second time.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
