Pike thread, post your pics of local Niagara pike

Recommended Posts

Gibson pike.
Was out this Am for about 2 hours and no signs of fish.
Threw out everything I had, nada. Talk about disappointing.
This evening, second cast with a white spinner bait, brought
in this 22 inch pike. Guessing with the heat the last few weeks
the pike have gone deeper.DSCN4143.JPG

I don't like touching them because they stink with smell that lingers.

We have these masks .......   :rolleyes:

 

....and I know what you mean about "smelly"  fish . Pike have a distinctive odour and even small fish like smelts can easily be i.d, by smell . After a day of having  carp in my rubber net , I know well NOT to leave the net in my van in the heat !  I give the net some time to dry before leaving and carry a big leaf bag for it until I get home ....reverse the bag ,  hose both down and let dry in the shade .  (maybe some pretty smelling spray is in order) ...

Bluebird skies, mid afternoon.  Put a few casts in one area, and as the lure got close to me was about

to pull it out of the water and this gal took it. What a nice surprise. Was 32 inches.

Walking the dogs along Gibby this AM, I brought my rod and believe it or not, caught this skinny 22incher on the first cast. That's a first for me.
