A Fish Story

Did I ever tell you guys about the time a couple years back, we got rained out at work so I decided to take the backroads home and try a little fishing along the way ?
I knew of a place where we were catching walleye in the evenings and figured I would try it in the afternoon, When I got there I had a pearl colored jig tied straight to my 6 LB line but after catching 4 small pike and no walleye I decided to tie on a wire leader. Well not long after I tied on the leader I latched onto something quite heavy and at first I thought it was a small pike that had run through the weeds and had a mess of vegetation wrapped up on him, but once I got things into view in the clear water I saw it was a large pike and when she seen shore the fight was on. With the light tackle I had I could not horse her and about 30 minutes later I landed her. Snapped a couple quick pics and took a quick measurement and back she went. Never did stay long enough for the walleye to start biting that evening...LOL

YA It's a TON of FUN for sure. I will be fishing the area in about a month from now if the ice is gone. It's an awesome area with seclusion and clear waters. I stumbled across it while hunting a few years back
