    Default Big Pike!!!!

    Photograph of a fish I caught early this morning. He measured 44" long and 21" in girth. Not sure how much he weighed. I put him back after the photo. Anyone have any ideas?

    I put this in the fishing pics thread, the forum won't let me post it again here. So look there if you want to see it. Sorry...

    If you upload the picture to a free photobucket.com account, then you can post full size pictures in multiple places on the forum. I'm convinced that's the best way to go, as you're not limited by file size, multiple posts, and the picture doesn't show as a thumbnail. Just a thought. (If you do that, just cut and paste the picture URL that they give you which starts with the [IMG] tags.)

    Nice fish.

    I thought F&G was encouraging people to harvest those fish eating machines.

    Thanks for the congratulations. I took him on an 8 wt fly rod at about 3am. He took a red and white deceiver type fly. Red chenille body, red collar and a tail of 6" of silver krystal flash and 4" of white bucktail.

    It was in a lake about 100 miles NW of Fairbanks. We flew out to it for the weekend. The lake is self contained with Pike and whitefish. I don't like the taste of them anyway. They're just fun to catch. I'd like to get him mounted, but it would probably cost like 48349599 dollars.

    Thats a hog of a hen ya got there Cody! I'd be guessing some where around 30#'s myself.

    If'n your thinking about mounting give Reeltrout.com a look, and I won't mention he is working on a 41"er of mine.

    Very impressive fish.

    Nice fish, and on a fly-rod. Congrats for sure. My boy caught a 15 pounder in the Fairbanks area a couple years back. I must say that he was very tastey. I would eat another pike anyday. I put the taste of Pike above trout, grayling, and most other fish as a matter of fact.
