Default Nice Chain Pike

Hit Catherine this AM and found fish shallow. Working a twitch bait shallow when this 36" Pike hammered it. It had a huge head, and when it came in I thought it was a 40" but it didn't measure. Really nice Pike for the chain.

Released this one, but If I get one through the ice it will end up deep fried if it's under 30"

I posted a Muskie pic too, and Smallies as well. Like you, I don't feel the need to post pics of every fish I catch.

And no PP, only Spectron, although in honor of Rapman, I taped my reel to a 4' broomstick as my rod.

You know little joey i really don't bag on other peoples tackle,boats etc.BUT after seeing this picture i going to have to call you on a line of b.s. from your other post.There is no way you use a muskie rod 7'6'' long and use it effectively when you only what 3'11'' tall.
