My brother-in-law, my nephew( this was his first canadian adventure) and I were on our annual trip to canada when we decided to go and explore some new fishing areas on Nipigon for big pike. I was casting the shoreline and watching my lure closely all the way back to the boat when i see a strange fish, something i had only heard stories of following my Rapala like a Pike to the boat. It took my lure about five feet from the boat and my jaw dropped and when i had it hooked i was yelling big trout! big trout!. This fish is going to be one of the most memorable catches iI have ever made because i watched the whole scenario unfold right before my eyes. We took some pictures and let the fish go.
