Good luck smerch. 

No such luck Ty .....but  I'll be eating pike -ka - bobs very soon !   Here's the "inside"  story .......

I  asked a guy I know well , if he catches any decent pike to give me a shout  .  That guy called me from his secret pike spot & said he had a nice juicy pike that swallowed the treble ( oos)  ...out of sight ! So I said , "bring it over" . It was nice of "Mr Knightfisher"  alias Pike Hunter  to deliver right to my house !  

   I "was" going to get a picture of it before performing the 5 fillet autopsy but my neighbour  wanted to see how to clean a pike ....soooo , I  got a shot of the autopsy .  Here is the report .....

   She was 29 inches long , about 4lbs 6 oz.... and had  5 minnows for her last meal , one about 3" long . She looks healthy all around and will be very tasty as a kabob pike !  Thanks Dan !  

   Not for those with weak stomachs or peeta members to see .....

    ...note the minnows at the bottom .......

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.

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 a

Back at it this morning with bobber and minnows and managed a beauty pike at 37 3/4 " and 7.8 lbs...took me for a few zings on the 6 ft with 6 lb test...and some a$$hoe stripped a bunch of wire and le

Funny how pike are so strong smelling when they are being cleaned , yet no fishy taste at all after cooked . 

They are so tasty when kabobed (new word) .... Here is supper today    pike ,  with zucchini , red pepper , mushroom , onion . cherry tomatoes  & bacon .  ...add a little salt & pepper , and some suds .....   :wub:

 

Still have over half the pike fillets for another day ....

Smerch one day you’ll have to show me how to five fillet a pike.  We’ll have to catch one first.  Dinner looks delicious. 

There is also a filleting method to clean pike , (You Tube) and carefully removing the strip of "Y" bones  ,

I prefer the five fillet method as I like that thick strip of boneless  meat  above the back bone for kabobs .....each piece cut about 1" x 1" ....then the 2 "fillets" from the anal to the tail for the bob's . The sides can also be used but I fold each piece in half to get more thickness ....can also just fry them up like any other fillet .

   .....bottom left chunk of pike next to the zuccini  is from the back of the pike and I like to have a piece of bacon beside the pike for flavour .....(before cooking)

We used to call them hammer handles ,  now called snot rockets & toothy ones .

Gota love them no matter the size. I never take a hooked pike for granted. The adrenaline
flows till the fish is in the net. Most pike put up some type of fight trying to throw the lure.
It can get quite exhilarating when the pike breaks water and they seem to have an art to
throw the hook.
I once caught a pike on a spinner bait, but my line broke before I could net him. About two
minutes later that pike was breaking water, about a foot up trying to throw the spinner.
On his third attempt the pike threw it out. I could not believe what I was seeing.
Anyways, I enjoy the hunt and the fight when lucky enough to hook into one, Also most hook ups
guaranty a fish over two feet long, not too shabby.

Forget the net and you have a real challenge !  I have donated some blood from those razor sharp mandibles . Always have a "good" pair of long nose pliers handy .

The upper part of their mouth is all bone and teeth and very little little meat on the lower jaw . , thus they have an advantage of throwing the hook(lures) when there's no tension on the line .  When the eye bite is off at Quinte , we toss lures in the back bays and have a blast catching pike !

  first pic. is my largest  , caught in knightfisher's canoe at Jordan......(worm harness) 

second shot is my  last decent pike caught at our trailer park from shore , ( 5" Husky Jerk)
