The Fish of a Lifetime!
I caught this monster 31 pound northern pike in 1998 up on Lake Athabasca in northern Saskatchewan with Lakers Unlimited.
At the time it was the Lodge Record.
The guide promised me, "the record will never stand. We'll break it next year for sure!"
As of the end of 2002 it still stands! You can click here to read about their latest season - close, but no cigar!
In 1998, my dad and I caught twelve northerns 20 pounds or more, including a 27 and 28. In 1997, we caught eight lake trout between 25 and 30 pounds. All these trophy fish, including this one, were live released, though we kept a few small ones for shore lunches each day.
This may be the best lake trout and northern fishing in the world!
