    We have northern pike here in the Milwaukee river, but i wouldn't eat them. My favorite fish to catch is largemouth and smallmouth bass.

    I live here among the lakes...but I don't have a boat...so I only go when I can bum a ride.

    Bass fishing is better up here than most people think. Walleyes are harder to catch.

    Did someone say fishing!

    Check this crap out. I live in the damn desert and I love fishing. How stupid is that?

    Anyway, I get my annual fix via a Canadian fishing trip every June. IT'S ALMOST JUNE!!!

    Let me see if I can attach a pic.

    When this hit the line, I thought I caught the bottom of the damn lake.

    The best part is that were were back trolling through a popular walleye jigging area, and the other boats were pissed at us for trolling through, and then probably more mad with our ensuing success.

    And here's the pike that Pa caught. It was his birthday too. There isn't much better for us than father/son fishing for 4 days including his birthday.

    Hm... my pic didn't attach. Dad is above. I'll try mine again.

    My pike was a measley 38 inches compared to his 44.

    Thats a BEAUTIFUL fish Timmons! Now.....i didn't look close enough.....was that a northern, or a musky? Musky is one of the FEW fish i haven't caught yet. I got a 20 pound king slamon off a pier in Lake Michigan, a 5 pound small mouth out of the Menominee River, and a big gar fish when i was down south with a friend of mine.
    I hooked a HUGE fish back in the 70's while fishing with my Mom in Lake Beaulah. She though i was snagged and grabbed my line! (The ONLY time i EVER threw a woman out of a boat!) J/K!!!

    Yeah, lighting in our fishing pics suck. He's a better fisherman, I'm a better photographer. Both are Pikes. When we go north, his main goal is Walleye, and when they're not hitting, we cast (or back troll) for Pike.

    Backtrolling usually happens after lunch (fat and happy). That's how I got mine.

    He is the freaking walleye king. A jigging fool, all I catch are rocks, and he'll find the school. Not only can he tell you what he's bringing up, he'll guess the size and pretty damn accurately.

    It's too early for bass in Canada (not season) so we throw them back, but we'll hit a few of them while casting. I'll find some Walleye pics.

    Dang......my dream is to get to fish up in Canada someday. I know the pike grow HUGE up there. I hooked a MONSTER pike one day while fishing the Menominee River. I saw him on the surface ONCE. Then he took off downstream, and snapped my brand new 12 pound test Triline. It's just as well though......i was on a bridge, and would have had a HECK of a time getting down to the water while holding onto that fish.

    Last summer I made a 12 hour playlist on my iPod and fished for the whole day. Like 15 times.

    Not even ******** you.

    Just got back from the easter Sierra Opener. 4 bls browns were the norm on the stringer. Never caught a Pike but have reeled in some pretty fun fish in the Pacific. Can't wait for October for the Lobsters, rather Bugs, as we call them here.

    Pike are fun, but you have to have a leader... otherwise keep the boat above him and the line REALLY tight, to keep his jaw up.

    They roll in the gills and cut the line.
