Monster pike out of canada.

Recommended Posts

Boar

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.

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

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
