Biggest Fish Of The Trip

Biggest Fish Of The Trip
Dad's Northern Pike from Lac Suel

Jeff Butler

Twin Lakes Wisconsin



On a very cold and windy day, we ducked behind a small island to take cover from the biting wind. Trolling small spinner baits with minnows, trying to land some big walleye, Dad hooked this big pike. We have a camp derby, and this fish won our boat the trophy. Another nearby boat from our camp was nice enough to loan us their scale since ours only went to 16lbs.
