i never see any big pike pics on here ?

Recommended Posts

We went to Big Gull lake near Northbrook Ont. in Sept. I couldn't  believe how small they were. 12 or 14 inches long. A guy was telling us about the one that got away and he said you won't believe this but I bet that pike was 2 feet long.  I haven't been there since 2006 and the fishing was getting bad then I thought but man I couldn't believe it. The lake is as beautiful as it ever was but the fishing pressure must be relentless. Big boats every where and blast by you at full tilt 20 yards away. How far north or west do you have to go these days to get into fishing like it was 30 or 40 years ago.

Tennessee Guy used to  post them all the time, some huge pike, but like some us age has idercaught up with us? We never considered a pike good sized until it hit the 40 inch mark, but fishing pressure has had an effect too?

Still fishing NW Ontario 16 - 23 days a year, every year.   Still catching my share of nice pike, but have shut down on taking photos.   They are unhooked while in my huge Frabil net, net is lowered and pike smiles as she swims slowly away.   No out of water pictures, but a couple of short movies of the release,  using polarized lens as fish swims.   

Fortunately I haven't aged a bit.   God and medical professionals are punishing me by having me live too long.

Id imagine people don't like sharing spots anymore. To many people lurk forums that aren't members and then just go to these spots were they see fish. So if someone posts big pike in lake x. Guess what lake will have 100x more people at it.

Glad to hear you are still going strong Connie! Keep at it!

This is about as big as I have caught. I'd like to have a better pic but when I tried to hold it up it jumped out of the canoe ---T'was a big laugh.The story was better than a pic! No steel leader---per MNR there were no  pike listed for that lake!😃

This guy was tiny but check out the size of the lure he attacked, just shows how aggressive these guys really are.

I just had to take the little guys picture because of his gutsy attitude LOL

Nice fish! I should get back into taxidermy if that's what people are willing to pay now. It must have made a beautiful mount.
