Sure do. And it wasn't 14 lbs. It was about 32" and 7 or 8 lbs. Every year somebody claims a huge pike but the story never holds up. The largest pike in the river are generally 32" to 34". I don't think the river has the depth characteristics to grow them much bigger. The summer heat really put it to them.

Well...... :smile:

my biggest pike out of the Des Plaines was last year in March - 37" I'm guessing it had to be 12-14lbs. AND I DIDN'T HAVE A CAMERA ON ME....REALLY SUCKED!!!

I will be back there tomorrow at the same location WITH A CAMERA READY THIS TIME.
