Hi all, Fantastic mr Trout here with a Fantastic miss pike….We scouted the lake yesterday for ice, and it did not look good. The few places where you can put the boat in the water was all covered in ice, however the ice was not that thick so this morning we took a gamble and went a head with the fishing plans anyway. We arrived early this morning and was surprised to see that the ice had withdrawn further in and had opened up for our boat.
After a few cold hours with no fish, we headed for one of our secret spots and a whopper of a pike got hooked on the third cast. A personal best, weighing in at 12.8kg, 108cm long, a fat ass female pike.
Hope you all have a great holiday and all the best for the new year.
