Nice DPR Pike
 
I caught this big girl on 8/20 in a deeper hole on the northern Des Plaines, in Lake County. I was using a large floating rapala, and like most pike, she struck about 3 feet from shore. I measured her with a piece of fishing line at 38 inches.. mouth shut, tail pinched. I really didn't think they got this big in the Des Plaines. If I was fishing alone, I would never have landed her. Had to give my buddy my pole while I got in the water and grabbed her. I can't figure out how to post a picture.. I resized to 800x600 and used image tags.. still, it didnt work. So please click the link below.

Nice Northern pike. Seems like the Des Plaines River is a good place to fish for northern pike.
