    I'm not sure if I posted pics from my couple weeks in Alberta back in January so I'll post them when I get the videos up.


    Catching big northern pike takes a little luck and a little skill. On this particular evening I borrowed a bit of skill from a fellow fishing buddy, as he put us on a great spot for a last light attempt at a giant pike. Slept in after a late night and hit the water as the sun was dropping. Put three tip ups in and started jigging. We went 3 for 3 on the tipup and my brother caught a nice walleye. Last fish turned out to be my new personal best northern pike a 42.5 inch fatty. Released her for another day. Got to love big Ike fishing! If you want to get after big pike you'd be best of targeting on full moons. Seems we have our best luck on big pike as darkness falls and the full moon sits above. Give it a try and tell me what you think.

    Nice Fish!
    Catch and Release... good karma too.
    I live in central California; never been ice fishing... looks like fun.
