Post some pics, wheres all the hogs at?

First winter targeting pike this year, what a blast!




Kept a couple for the pressure canner


Last summer tried sturgeon fishing SSR and what a riot those guys are! Landed this one anchored out in the middle, brought her to shore so we could release gently, she rocketed out of the water after getting hooked, wont ever forget it



I hear if you hold them out they look bigger


Ready for more sunny days on the ssr

Great pics. I gave up trying to post pics on here as I'm not very tech savvy. BUT, if I get stuck at home for 2 weeks it will give me a chance to learn

Default Fishing for compliments picture thread

Here’s a good one from this week.






Couple from last days off. We got six blacks in two days of fishing.








Got the boys out for some social distancing earlier today. Nothing worth showing, just a couple small tuna and some mahi mahi. Good chewing and the right sized fight for my little men.

Yes, wahoo. Possibly my favourite fish as sashimi but also very good cooked.


Nice pics everyone.

I hear you Sam. I always looked forward to getting the boat out of storage come springtime and hitting the lake when the ice came off. Conversely I hated packing it away for the winter. Possibly because I never liked ice fishing as much as open water.

Yeah fishing for little trout just doesn’t have the same appeal after that one.

Terrific pictures everyone. Nice Wahoo. I had one spool me a few years ago tarpon fishing.
Roper I'm not too big on ice fishing but every spring I take clients out for spring pike and I imagine what they look like before they recently spawned. That's a great pre spawn specimen, well done young lady!

Thank you, I had a phenomenal year ice fishing. I caught 4 over 40" which is something I have not achieved before. It's not allowing me to share more pictures.
It's great to see everyone's pictures. Tight lines!

This is the 47 that I caught in March. The one I caught in January when I met you had a smaller girth.

It was nice to meet you.

Default Social distancing at the river yesterday.

Went fishing yesterday and managed a nice 22” brown trout. Also lost a 18” at the net and missed many bites.

Couple good pike to finish the season

Modded my jawjacker to work like the ifishpro, so they can run with the bigger baits before setting the hook, seemed to do the trick
