Leslie Dalton

Concord Michigan

Fishing on June 21, 2013 on Bear Lake in Manitoba with North Haven Lodge guide Jamie Canada and my brother Larry Dalton, I caught a 46.5 inch nothern pike. I'm 82 years old and this is my personal best by almost 10 inches. This pike qualified me for North Haven's 45+ club. I caught the pike on a gold Johnson silver minnow with a white grub trailer. The photo is of Jamei Canada and myself. The photo was taken by my brother Larry Dalton.
