Dues have been paid in full.

John landed this beauty tonight! Since he hadn't measured some of his previous big fish in the past, we are officially calling this one his PB!!

Congrats John, you were way over due:

45.5x28 and 45lbs

Man oh man all of these pictures and threads of big fish being caught is getting me so down! Hopefully Kyle is still down for going out tonight (Sunday) to try and land some big ones. I am really confident that I will beat my PB 30 lb. fish from last year sometime during this season.

Congrats WWG on the big girl...just awesome.

Nice one John, and well-deserved considering the time you put in week in and week out. Saw you catch a dozen or more in the 35+ class last year alone, but this one definitely takes the cake. Very good looking fish.

Great fish John. For the hours you have already spent on the river this spring, you were due.

I guess I need to fish more and go to the race track less if I'm going to land the big mama.

That is a great sign. Congates on the PB WWG smile

I have no dought that John will see 50lbs soon and I have him picked as one of the ones to possibly break the 60 mark wink

Thanks for the update Dtro. Needed for tonight after last night on pool 2. Two small flats and a handful of channels but nothing worth taking images of. After Fri. Thinking out of the box has to be the key wink

Nice one John!!

The big question is... which rod & reel combo scored that beast? You get that on the new Tiger/Okuma combo or one of the old Daiwas?

    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!    
    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
    • Spotted it on the way back from getting wood and tried to sneak up on it. 
    • Hawg - please take down my post - didn't mean to offend or break any rules     
    • I looked it up on google and found it but not the sprinkler it was $12.99. I don't remember what it was.
    • Just went home for lunch and....he's back.
    • Within the last few days the bluejays have discovered my suet cakes.   Also have a hairy woodpecker that has appeared recently.
