Personal best Pike?

10 posts in this topic

Way smaller than that caught on a Orange Daredevil with block spots from a lake in Southern  Ontario.  17lb is a nice fish.  Never had a chance to fish the lakes with monster pike

Gotta go to Canada for great pike. Below are just a few from a week long remote trip. Was mainly targeting walleye.  All caught in small swimbaits, x-raps, and biggest one ate my walleye on the way to the boat.

 Both these pike were caught in late winter jigging with homemade chartreuse/ white  bucktails. 
These were caught in New England. Top one was 39 inches and 17.2 lbs and bottom  one was 34 inches and 13.5 lbs. 

Not big by pike standards, but both are PB for us.5520CB23-CD73-475C-924E-2DFBC04B7C1C.jpeg.fd17ee54604e10acece4d3659da78260.jpeg341696B7-5496-4B90-B304-6D3E5FF890B3.jpeg.996d7d0d1dc7fadafe5ace11a2d6f409.jpeg

Best pike was 14in. Nothing even worth mentioning, but since you asked...

 

Caught while fishing for smb and lmb in Wisconsin.

 

I was still in high school at the time and had very little experience chasing anything but bass, channel cats, and bluegills in the warm waters of TX.

 

Wish I could get back to those waters at this time with my acquired knowledge. Pike fishing would be fun.

No size or picture on her.  I was fishing alone when it hit out of no where at boat side, slamming a crankbait. It took me for a ride and entertained a boat of onlookers. As a good estimate it was 36+ " inches and fought like crazy.  I was able to get a hand on her and slip the hook out before letting her go.  It was not far from where I caught my largest largemouth which I don't have a pic or measurements but it was longer than my forearm and I could get my whole fist plus inside it's mouth. Haven't fished that stretch in years though.
