Minnesota Fans, The Piking!

Recommended Posts

Here's the result of an idea I spawned back in 1994. The original PIKING!!!

All PIKING fish are made from fiberglass blanks, fitted with horns and hand painted. A great conversation piece for home or office! Order your own PIKING now! Prices are $12 an inch in 26, 35, 44 and 56" sizes. S&H included. Driftwood optional.

The PIKING Plug was sculpted and introduced the same year. A great gift idea! The PIKING Plug, (designed as a novelty) is like nothing else in your tacklebox. Each lure is hand cast and painted. This is truly a unique piece and a must have for all sportspersons! Overall length 7 inches with 3D horns. Order yours today for $25.95 s&h and all sales tax included.

Allow two weeks for delivery on the lures. Call or email for details on the PIKING fish.

There may be a few "knock offs" out there, but there's only ONE trademarked Original PIKING...since 1994.

Christmas is coming!

The picture is cool, but the real thing is totally incredible!!! I absolutely love it, we have some rabid viking fans down here and The Piking has been a real hit! Brian has been featured in numerous newspaper articles with The Piking and did a feature on MPR about it as well, to make it even better, get one of the small collector Packers helmets and put it in the mouth of The Piking and it looks even BETTER!!!!

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
