Cool vid, man!! Nice fish too... If I might add a touch of advice, you tend to get the fish a bit close to your rod tip at the end of fights.... with big fish, this will cost you one day... when you're fishing from a boat and launching bass in, that works great, but when you have big fish on and you are in a sitting position, keeping about a foot less than a rod's length of line out at all times will save you on that one big fish that runs hard, or that time your drag just isn't quite loose enough..

Great vid work, and cool rig you have set up! I loved watching. Surprised you didn't stick any pig pike on that lure...

This!

And that you landed a hammer handle during that debacle.

Nice bo-bo.

It's tough cause you can't stand up! Which def makes the trolling motor a factor... but man, there is little room for error when there is only a foot or two of line out. I dig your set up.. Keep after the pike.. big baits.. slooow roll.

Actually I can stand up. I usually do when fighting a fish. I'll keep at it with the pike for sure.
