    This is so cool. I was fishing today when I hooked into this small channel, all was good cause although he was small he still gave a good fight but heres the cool part I was fighting him back toward my way and was just about to bring him up out of the water when out of nowhere this huge...and i mean huge pike came right up and BAM grab ahold of him ( I nearly peed my pants ) this thing was the biggest fish ive ever saw in this river, but man was it a sight to see sadly i never got my fish because when he struck it he began to run off but he let go of it and i began to reel my channel in when he came back and struck it again this time managing to unhook him from my line. But man ill never forget that not to very often does a pike still someones fish. whewwee

    Great story! I hear tell that sometimes while walleye fishing where pike are present, the pike will attack a hooked walleye. I never get to fish where there are pike.:sad2:

    Pike will hit anything that moves, I mean ANYTHING. You may not want to spend a lot of time rinsing your hands off in that river:wink: The gar are similar in the OH river, but they're still not as agressive as pike.

    One time I was standing on a dock waiting out a storm, when a HUGE pike swam right up to the dock. He looked like a phone pole with teeth. He watched me for a while, then gave me a disgusted look and swam off. I then noticed that I was standing next to a fish cleaning station. I think he was waiting for me to fillet xome fish and toss the leftovers to him.
