    I did it! :lux:
    I did as you guys said and went back with heavier gear and caught the fish that broke my line twice in an earlier occasion.


    It is a northern pike.
    Not 100% sure it is the same fish but it had the same weight feeling and the jumping style kind of reminded of the other occasion.
    It was a clean release and I was very happy about that since I did not want to disrupt the order in the small lake.
    By looking at the body of the pike, I thought it looked "old" with alot of structure and bumps in the body, never seen pikes looking like that before. Maybe it was the guardian of the lake that I got to meet :notworthy

    Did it still have your lost baits hanging off its lip? The earlier one may still be out there!

    It did not... no hook wounds either, but I guess it would be hard to see since the first lures I used had pretty small hooks.
    I don´t know, hard to tell how many "big fish" a small lake like that can hold.

    Hard to tell but looks like it had a couple of old bite mark wounds, time to bust out the big pike lures and find momma
