Pike thread, post your pics of local Niagara pike

Recommended Posts

Some of us guys and gals target pike, so lets see those pics.
 
Size does not matter. Always nice to see different markings
of these toothie critters.

I got 3 that day... was nice to see all where different year classes of fish as well...and it's always rewarding to catch what you set out to target that day.

Well I am now back in town and ready to get the pike this afternoon.  I will be starting at one of my usual haunts and going until it is either too cold, or hunger hits, or my speaker dies and I have no music.

You got that right Bubba !    I should have went fishing  today , but played in the back yard instead !  But ....being an old established retiree , I have plenty of time to choose when to 'head for the hills' ....like TOMORROW !   ....before the monsoon rains come to us this week !  Got the "new" reconditioned carp rod ready to invade the old "shallow" spot in the morning . :Gonefishing:

 

....forgot to add ....  The heavy rains expected will put a damper on some spots with heavy mucky runoff , so I'll switch tactics and do some lure tossing for those toothy ones !

One pike today, had one hit, and had another one on that fought like a bat out of hell, that one wound up getting off.

 

Pics later when I have some time.

The pike ... measured up around 27".

I have re redo the spinnerbait as it was a bad hook combined with the spinnerbait getting caught in the net ... it is a mess.  No pic of the fish on shore, as the goal was get it back into the water ASAP since the unhook tool a little longer.

Nice to get some action on your own bait design...good thing you might have a few spare parts kicking around to fix up the ones that get munched ..lol...and cool about keeping the pike thread going..I'm hoping to add a pic or 2 soon.

Today was a good day ... maybe a little too much sun.  Started just washing the lures, but then changed locations and had one that went for it but didn't get hooked.

 

An hour or two later and this bulldog hit.  It managed to make the net man bleed.

I should add ... on one of my creations as well.
