43" Northern Pike

This is my brother Rob with a monster Pike he caught while trolling through Chippewa Harbor. We had only fished for about 15 minutes before it hit. It was the first Pike we caught this trip. (definetly not the last, we ended up landing about 30 pike, this being the largest, and lost just about as many.) 7 inch perch colored Rapala was the lure used. The funny thing about this shot was that just before this fish hit, Rob set his Fishing pole in the pole holder so he could take off his long johns, as it was getting really warm that day. He also had one shoe off as well and I have a vertical shot of him and the pike that shows the missing shoe and the loosened belt. This fish weighed 24 Lbs.
