19 June 2017 ~ Pike Day ~ Video Added

Recommended Posts

Well what was ‘suppose to be’  a smallie topwater day – quickly turned into a Northern Pike Beat Down.

Despite my best efforts to ignore these toothy buggers, they just refused to be denied the opportunity to eat everything I threw.  Repeatedly.  They were particularly fond of anything thrown without a wire leader. Cost me 2 RES & a Squarebill before I gave in and rigged up with wire.   Lippless baits and squarebill in the morning and then after noon time, it was all about the spinnerbait.  After several hours of just complete Esox lucius foolishness, I finally managed a decent one. 

Although it’s always fun to hammer the Pike, it did come at a cost however; Smashed, mangled & lost baits, cut fingers and worst of all, Pike Poop all over the Lund.  Not a fan. 

Man that stuff stinks !

Here’s a couple pics and there’s a short video loading now.  I’ll add it in a bit.

I love getting into a bunch of those aggressive little snot rockets (and it looks like you pulled at least one good one out to), at least when I come prepared with a tie-able wire leader.  Otherwise not so much.

Nice fish - as much as I love smallies, I'll take a "pike day" any time.

 

My favorite fish by far!

 

...there's a reason about half my rods are rigged with a tieable wire leader all the time.

Haha.  The slime is like a really bad sinus infection and it stays with you for days.

If it really bothers anyone, I'd advise them to avoid a Canadian fishing trip....;)
