It seems we have a new up and coming fishery in Washington.
The Northern Pike has arrived and seems to be doing well in the Pend Orellie River. A friend and myself made a trip up there a couple of weeks ago and we both caught our first Pike. We boated 6 and lost one with several missed strikes. The big fish was caught on a Mepps Musky Killer with a white tail.
A blue Fox number 6 in a Firetiger pattern caught the most.
I am planning another trip in Sept and hope to have a good report.
This is my buddy with the 2 biggest of the day, as neither of us had ever eaten Pike they all came home for the pan. Not bad table fare but not my first choice.
Can anyone tell me how to get them darn "Y" bones out?
