1. First cast of the day. Line broke just as I landed it. Fishing from the shore.

    10 lb. 14 oz. 38 in. Northern Pike with a Cotton Cordell BigO


Avid, lifelong fisherman who recently relocated to SE Kansas in 2016 in an attempt to break the Kansas Largemouth Bass record. I caught 3342 ...more fish in 2016. Roughly 75% of those were Largemouth caught in the 100's of strip pits located in the Mined Land Wildlife Area. The best Largemouth last year was a respectable 6lb/12oz but far from the 12 pounder I am fully committed to catching in 2017.
