2 personal best pike in one day!

Post by elcapitanmas »

So I've been fishing this local lake for about 10 years now, at least a couple times a season. Needless to say its never coughed up anything good for me, and I've struggled to catch a pike over 40" anywhere that I fish. About 4 years ago I swiched up my pike/muskie program after fishing with a freind that tuna fishes offshore. I only use dead bait now and a special rig that has given me a 100% landing ration on any legitimate bites. I've caught over a dozen fish to 38, but never over 40. Last year my first fish through the ice was a 40" tiger muskie. This year for first ice I only had some leftover ocean herring from last spring, but I figured I'd give it a shot :lol: Well this years first 2 fish DIDN'T dissapoint. I bested my PB 2 times in one day, with almost a third. First a 41" northern, followed by a 42" and then a 38" dink.

Jayvanhees, it's the only way I fish for them, switched it up about 5 years ago after fishing with some big fish masters. The big girls are lazy and IMO prefer an easy meal.
