1. We fought this beast for over an hour on a small jigging rod. Made the mistake of trying to grab under the gill plate and ended up with 5 stitches in my thumb!

      What a beast, and on a light jigging rod besides. Too cool! I'm guessing it was well worth the trip to the ER. LOL! I had a bad experience once with a 40 inch ...more pike that did the alligator roll at the most inopportune time. I was scared to take my glove off afterwords to see what was left of my hand. LOL!

      Awesome Jesse! That catch in one day beats all of my freshwater catches combined! I think you said this was in MN? Do you have Anti freeze in your blood? cause ...more in another picture that is labeled Jan 2015 you are wearing a T shirt. With this kind of fishing I'd consider moving [if I could withstand the cold] lololol. So, it's southbound in winter for me.

      Sounds like frog hugging down here I want to go lol

      Roy, it's a pitch fork looking "weapon." You can either use live bait or decoys to call in the pike...then you lunge the spear into the water (connected ...more to a rope) and it is VERY efficient! I've never gone, but I have watched TONS of youtube videos on it! Search "darkhouse spearing" if you're interested! That's a GREAT pike through the ice much less on a spear!
