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.

    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?  
    • Found a giant lichen orbweaver with prey and a Nordmann's orbweaver hanging around our deck.
    • I guess it depends what you are looking for. I just picked up 2 pairs of jeans for close to 50% off but this was also online and not a store.
