Stuff that Cecil!

That's not my idea of fun...Mind you, I have not lived nor have I been brought up in the cold...

I would prefer the heat. 40 C to - 25 C myself

We're going for a top of 25 C - 77 F today with a minimum of 15 C - .59 F..Just perfect IMO

I have noticed you guys are having a cold winter over there.

On the opposite end of the scale,We have not really had a hot summer over here at all (quite pleasant actually) with only a handful of days getting over 40 C - 104 F.

Cheers.

Nice Esox but I've see enough of them to know it's not 39 lbs. Mind if I share that video?

Hi Cecil

Yeah share, and they are estimating the pike in the video to be almost 10 kg, so you are right on the weight.

But if you click on that red tape saying 39 lbs you will get to this great video (it has english subtitles)

cut/paste : "Tolvan" or "The Biggun" is a pike fishing movie produced in Sweden during 2012 and 2013. Using the method float trolling we catch some of the biggest pikes in Sweden during these years.

I think the fish is almost dead and was held in the hole in the picture. Just out of the picture is another hole the guy dives in and comes up into the adjacent hole in the picture. Obviously not a capture by hand and for those of us that know anything about Esox Lucius you don't want to get anywhere near the mouth of an active fish. I have had them purposely try and snap at me. Very nasty teeth in their mouths including teeth that are curved back to hold onto their prey and can do a number on flesh or fingerings.

That makes sense Cecil...

I must admit. I did see how limp the fish was and thought to myself "gee wizz they must be a lazy fish" then thought nothing more of it.

Ande,

Pike are very active under the ice. They can really take line too. 

Sometimes they spawn while there is still ice on a lake.
