went out for a bit today. seen a GIANT northern pike. well over the 30" range. maybe into the 40's. she came back out of the calvert after she tried getting up stream. she may be the same pike (my pb 22lb 5oz (look at dp)) that i caught on feb 3. but i am not saying she is.

after a while i hooked up to a feisty white sucker

Carpmanjake nice pictures. I wouldnt be advertising that you would have tried to catch her if you had a chance they are out of season just to give you a head up.

On a side note I witnessed an odd pair of fish cruising together yesterday. One was a carp 24" range with a pike a liitle longer side by side. Thepike would not leave the carp at all. I seen the pair swim all down the shore and hold up right under the bank. I had the carp pick up my bait but didnt set the hook I didnt want to break this couple up. I would like to see their offspring. lol

i did not try and catch her. but things happen when your fishing. like my 10lb4oz pb walleye, caught in that SAME spot last year, on corn (while i was carp fishing).

and all last spring i was having pike take my nymph flies while i was fly fishing for carp.

i have been seeing this too! except the pike are usually smaller. they patrol the outer perimeter of the carp school. almost like sheep dogs herding sheep. very cool

My PB LM bass came on corn off the bottom while fishing for carp. Unfortunately, no camera that day. Nice fish, carpman!

    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
