Last afternoon Master

Park Rapids mn

Although I had caught and released a couple other master sized pike on my trip to Silsby lake. This one was special. The fish hit about 10 feet from the boat, I got to feel the awsome power as well as the beauty of a pike that size!

What an incredible fish! And my biggest ever! An amazing fish and memory for a life.
