First Pike in 14 Years

Recommended Posts

Hey all, Im pumped. I caught my first pike in 14 years yesterday. Was fishing for bass but he hit my top water frog.

 

He wasn't the biggest pike in the world but he sure was fun. Take a peek.

If you start targetting them, you would be well advised to use a 80lb fluorocarbon leader with appropriate snaps and swivels.

 

After being bitten off with 30lb and then 50lb braid like it was cotton candy, I started using the fluoro and haven't been broken yet(fingers crossed).

 

Cheers,

Here is a pic of one very similar, but the one I was using had a single hook through the bottom.

Thanks for sharing

Ya I really didnt think they'd be hitting it as hard as they were but in 6-8 ft of water it was working amazing, I was fishing for bass to be honest, but as soon as I noticed the pike striking I figured wth why not lol :D
