First Northern Pike I ever caught this past summer/ fall (2008). Caught pictures on my trusty iPhone. There are not that many Pike in Pennsylvania, not like bass, panfish, catfish, etc. They are nasty, very slimy, and very vicious! Caught in Shenango River , very interesting waters in NW PA.
Oh and I caught it on a sunny late afternoon, on s yellow perch, big hook, and bobber. The Pike was about 23" long. Very skinny. I saw some big stuff around this river moving around, shadows, ripples, etc. So I was after big striper, bass, muskie or pike.
