I hate to be a skeptic and I've seen it before but does that first photo of the big and little northern look legit?

haa haa there both real, the first one with the little pike is not a monster pike like the second one from Holland, its probably a 42-44 inch pike, seriously you guys should get that magazine there about 8 more pics of some huge pike from Holland in it

Thank you cowgirl.....Ive seen enough 10+ pound pike getting speared to last me a 1,000 lifetimes. Just dont understand why someone would want to kill something that big when there are literally thousands of smaller northerns swimming around that make a much better meal anyway. All i know is i would love for my son to be able to catch them and release them properly. Such a waste in my opinion.

Both of these photos have been all over the internet for awhile now. The top pic I am sure is legit just becuase I don't see a reason to fake it also it would be an extremely tough photoshop job.

The bottom pic is of a different fish all together and is a Eurpean fish.

I really don't think that first picture could be a fake for a few reasons, first, that happens, more than you would think, I have seen it happen once and know from people that it has happened. Second that pike eating the little slimmer isn't all that big, look at it in comparison to the minnow, likely a fathead or crappie minnow, maybe a 36-40" fish. Just someone had the camera ready at the right time. I agree, bad day for that little guy, first a hook in his mouth, then in his big brothers mouth.

The second one has been floating around on the forum already, I personally don't believe it is a real photo, the head looks distorted and the tail looks chopped and grainy compared to the rest of the picture.

    • The storm last weekend  has moved the birds into the heavy duty winter cover. We had pretty good hunting in the cattails the last couple of days. Perfect weather helped.
    • In my humblest of opinions the simpler the better for prime rib.   Take it out of the refrigerator, salt (kosher) the entire piece and let stand until it's at room temp. Stick it into your smoker/oven at 450-500 degrees until crusted (about 1 cocktail). Lower heat to 325. Have a least 3 cocktails before poking it with a thermometer. Remove once internal temp is 120. Let rest for at least 1 more cocktail Cut and serve with horseradish.
    • In the worst case, the population would have to be held at a low level for a few years, like maybe 5.      I still haven't seen much indication that prions in the dirt are an issue in actuality (as opposed to theoretically).   
    • Fire Mike Preifer now : https://www.reviewjournal.com/sports/raiders-nfl/kicking-adjustment-makes-difference-for-raiders-daniel-carlson-1546061/
    • The prions will always be in the soil, so the “clean” population will eventually contract them and we’re back to where we are now.    I love the the idea of trying to control CWD, but I don’t believe we can.   
    • I have not but it really sounds interesting. The video I watched used garlic, butter and thyme sprig when they seared it. Looked perfect when they cut it open.
    • It was probably always around but the deer population was kept to levels that were low enough that it never became an issue until people started to create game farms and food plots that concentrated the deer in smaller areas.    I suppose we could just go all in on the big antler craze and forget about eating them and just take the antlers for the wall. 
    • 99% of the time when I do beef I stick to kosher salt and coarse ground black pepper.  I salt the beef liberally as soon as I get it home from the market, wrap it back up in the butcher paper, and pop it in the fridge until cooking (24 hours is ideal, 12 is ok).   The salt will draw the water out of the meat, and then the meat will reabsorb the water with the salt molecules in it.  Seasons the inside and really helps produce a moist chunk o beef.   Check out articles on a dry brine for more details on how that science works.     Add the pepper before cooking.     I always have a bit of grated horseradish on the side.   The 1% of time I add more than salt n pepper, I add garlic and rosemary at the time I add the pepper.
    • Yeah, that also.  Thanks for coming along on the ride! 😉
