Fun pike story

20 posts in this topic

I was up north hammering the bluegills with my GF and her roomie 2 weekends ago. I was using my 6' ultra-lite rod that I built, using 3 lb test. I'm reeling in a 9" bluegill and boom!!!! right at the boat a big northern grabs it. Splashes me with his tail as he takes off. Did it on the next one too. So I switch to my medium action baitcaster to reel those gills in and let him grab the 3rd one, hook into the beast, and get him in the boat. The girls grabbed my camera and took pictures of the whole thing, I really like how they turned out

Him grabbing the gill the 2nd time around

Awesome. Thanks for sharing. Encounters like that really make you take a step back and realize how wild and untamed mother nature can be.

jeez, someone was hungry. I'm actually surprised the bluegill didn't take off after the first time one got a attacked.

Love that third pic & cool story to boot. Nothing better than watching pike or musky explode up on the surface. Pure eating machines!

Most people out on a canoe for bluegills wouldn't take the time and space to bring the baitcaster setup and net but it payed off for you. Looks like a lot of fun.
