My 8 year old and his friend caught this bullhead out of our lake today.

Fish Tales

Musky - Pike

I was given a old but never been used rod and reel Friday, used it for the first time Saturday on Hi Land Lake in Hell Michigan. Off my buddy's dock I pulled in this 24 incher.

And about 20 minutes later I pulled in a similar but much larger fish. I could not get him on the dock though. My rod was bent all the way down, the lever and gearing would not allow me to pull him in further than 10 feet from shore. I had to let him out a little for fear of breaking the line. The fish fought another 15 feet away from me. I was pulling him back in and got a good look at him thrashing about, I estimate at least 33 inches long. At about 15 feet from shore the lure came flying back towards me, the monster got away - this time.

About 10 minutes after that I felt a good tug, but it did not set.

I fished for another two hours, but nothing. The day had started out with some old worms which had just expired. I caught 16 small fish with those including a fat and meaty 7-1/2" perch.

My random fish, Lac Seul Canada.

This is a 39.5 inch Northern Pike caught a few years ago in Canada on a white spinner bait. It was a 15 minute fight on my oldest rod (Fenwick Lunkerstick) and bait casting reel (Garcia Ambassadeur 6000). This thing looked like a frickin submarine when it surfaced next to the boat. It was released immediately after the photos. We prefer to eat the easy to catch and clean Walleyes in Canada.

Very nice fish. I hope you put him back in the water...these big guys are the main breeders. I fish Canada every year and we've caught similar fish.. One really gets spoiled by all the action.

Here's my biggest so far....38":

Four friends and I had some fun out of Ensenada last weekend. We came away with 13 yellow tail, who knows how many bonito, and a couple sand bass. A great time was had by all.

Yes sir, but my favorite part of the trip was fishing for salmon in the river. Bald eagles overhead and saw a few grizzly bears.

Enjoy a wonderful Alaska fishing vacation at Alaska's best fishing lodge - Tanaku Lodge

The great part, we had an SI take me and a few of the other guys in our company. You fly into the lodge on a plane that lands in the water. Pretty Cool! Had never done this before.
