This was a good day at Elevenmile. ( Not my best) I kept all these pike because I like to eat pike and I don't ice fish so this was my last day of fishing for pike until next spring. I want to add that I will never keep this many pike again. It was a mistake. I also want to say for every pike you see in front of me I let go ten the same size that year. This is what happens when you put your time in on the water. I put in 12 hours a day 3 days a week and 6 hours another day (42 hours a week) every week for and entire season. Minus a few days here and there of course, but basically I lived there.
PS I only keep one pike at a time now even if it is my last trip for the year. I feel like pike are already under seige and I don't need to help keep the population down.
PSS The pike on the bottom right had 9 rainbows in her. the rest of the pike's bellies were empty.
