M. Kerwin and I had a quite successful trip to an unnamed lake in Algon last spring and we had hoped to do the same this year. However, we could not go until a week later this year and the weather had been quite hot. So our plan B was to camp on a lake N of P Sound that supposedly had good walleye and portage to a lake on at least one day to a lake that has--it was said---good LT fishing.Neither lake has pike according to the FishOn website.

The first morning we went hunting for walleye, no luck. There were quite a few OOS bass surfacing and we hooked a couple. A while later I shouted to M. that a had a snag. Then, wait a minute, no snag---there's a wiggle to it but no forward movement. After a few minutes it became clear that I had hooked a big pike. After struggling with it quite a while I got it close to the canoe and my dinky net. Somehow, with some finesse, M. managed to stick his head into the net and swing him aboard. M took the attached pic as I untangled the triple hooks. I then suggested that he pass the pike to me so I could get a good pic holding it. It quickly became evident that would not be practical because of the weight, the slime and 1 very lively fish. So we agreed that M would hold the fish while I took the pic. He picked it up and lifted it a few inches above the bottom of the canoe. Suddenly, with a burst of energy, the pike jumped from his hands and into the water. Har dee har!!. So the pic posted is our best pic. It was at least as long as the canoe is wide---36". To top it all off I had no steel leader. Neither of us had brought any because----supposedly----there were no pike to be found!

We did get to the trout lake the next day but the lakers had gone quite deep. We caught a couple, lost a couple more and had a few more hits.

Looks like a fun trip! I don't think that fish on thing is very accurate as I've checked out lakes I know very well on it, but I'd definitely take a nice pike like that! Thanks for the great report, I enjoyed it

As I see it, the diff between a challenge and a PITA is a matter of attitude---and prob what side of the bed one gets out on----but this battle with the pike, which I thought I had won, was definitely on the good side of the line!

Hahaha....I wouldn't give you a 12" creek speckled for gps locations on a pike lake...let alone specific info on where to go and catch nice ones!

Good try though!...I thought I already gave you a general direction for your canoe trip in Algonquin for good lakers and brookies, and instead you went to Parry Sound and caught pike!?...you can catch those in the ditches around here!!
