    I fish pike almost exclusively in the winter. I love the fight and they are somewhat easy to catch.

    I love to fish for pike but have not fished for them since I was home in Montana. I fished both North Dakota and Montana on the Missouri and on the Yellowstone near Sidney, I tried to get to Lake Sakakawea as much as possible when I wasn't irragating or stuck on the farm. I have been waiting for a post on pike since I joined the BOC, it brings back a lot of great memories Thanks.

    Mke,
    I fished for pike a lot in the winter when I lived in England. Mostly the Oxfordshire Thames and it's tributaries and some Oxfordshire gravel pits...W

    Cheers W:

    But do you fish for them in the USA?

    I've got a reason for starting this thread.

    I loved catching them back in Iowa, and still do whenever I take vacation, though I've never caught anything big. However, they are slim pickings in NC and I'm stuck with chain and redfin pickeral, which, frankly are better than nothing.

    I like pike, but I am not sure I qualify as an enthusiast.

    We have plenty in our lakes here in Wisconsin. There a blast to catch, looks like an explosion when they hit.

    Let's see get up in the morning eat and go out fishing for eyes then when lunch and or dinner is in the boat put away the toys and go looking for the big boys! 42 inches is the biggest so far but I just know there is one 48 or 49 monster hidding up in Canada with my name on it!

    I have to say catching a big northern is prly the most exciting fishing i have experienced. My wife caught her first ever northern this summer that was over 30 inches, and now thats all she wants to fish for.
