You Win Some, You Lose Some, And Then You Really Lose Badly.

Recommended Posts

 It was shaping up to be another good day of lipless cranking on the home lake. I had boated a couple pike, and a small keeper largemouth, when disaster/amother pike struck....................I am just getting home from the ER getting stiches in my thumb from a pike trying to chew it off, so I will never know if it was a good day catching wise, but it deff. was a bad day of fishing.

Noodling for pike is never a good idea. I think you are only supposed to do that with fish that don't have sharp teeth.

Ouch!!!! Though one of those devils has never gotten me, just about every one I've ever caught has tried his hardest. (For you southern guys, that's not a joke. They continually turn their head to try to bite you.) They are just flat mean. I enjoy catching them. I just don't enjoy dealing with them after I've caught them. On a well-equipped boat they're bad enough. Catch one in a kayak, though, and it's a whole different ball game.

Hopefully, you're back on the water ASAP!

Won't slow me down. Just be a minor nuisance for a while. I plan on being out there at least two more times before the end of the week.

Bummer. Must've been pretty bad for you to stop,fishing and go to the ER. I had a couple pickerel get me before but no stitches received but I probably should have. Good thing I keep some tape with me :)

Sorry to hear man. Must be a chore handling those. I remember seeing a youtube video with some guy having a pike pierce his hand. I hope you gave it a backhand!

Pike can be nasty if they get ahold of your flesh. I got bit by a pickerel back in NJ trying to remove a hook

Guess you learn first hand that pike do not make good snugglers. Good thing she gave you the cold shoulder before any kissing started taking place, just sayin.
