Fished daylight till dark on Lee lake today. Started the the day with a 32" northern and a nice mess of gills.
Around 1:30 I had a flag and set the hook on a HUGE pike that broke my 40lb tip up line. I got it's head all the way up to the hole and I don't think it would've fit through. Judging by the size of it's head and how hard it came in compared to the 32 incher I would guess it was pushing 20lbs. It was like pulling in a 50lb river anchor.
I hope it spits the swedish hook and don't die.
Missed another run, and caught some more gills and a 12 1/2 inch crappie right before dark.
