Two days of fishing on some awesome pike water

12 July 2019 - 02:06 PM

A buddy and I spent two days on some awesome pike water near Fairbanks.

Mike with a 37 inch pike caught on spinning gear.

The fish were hitting everything. Several times we had two fish on at a time.

Mike used all spinning gear and I used mostly fly tackle.

In the two days we caught about 95 fish. 70 of them were over 24 inches and about 30 of them were 37 inches long or longer.

I'm the photographer so you won't see much of me. Here's Mike with a 38 inch fish.

This is my biggest fly caught fish of the trip, a 37 1/2 incher.

We let them all go unharmed except one we kept for eating. It was a great trip, and close to home. We're already planning another one.

What do you do at your day job?

01 May 2019 - 08:28 PM

We've got lots of interesting people here. I'm curious to know what you do at your day job. If you're retired ( you cranky old such an suches) what did you do?

 

Here's what I do when I'm not tying flies or fishing.

 

I just finished these and sent them to their owners.
