It's a 14ft. Rogue River polyethylene canoe. It's perfect for fishing the backwaters especially when the water is low. It's very stable, which is a plus when your sett'n hooks on pike.Islandfisher said:Nice pike!
What kind of boat are you guys using? Looks like fun
Wow, that's awesome, I actually own a red 14ft. Rogue River for a while now. I haven't used it for a while but now I'm thinking that it will be perfect for when the Des Plaines floodes in the spring.pikemaster said:It's a 14ft. Rogue River polyethylene canoe.

Thanks for your comments. Looking forward to hearing your backwater pike reports from the DPR!DPRFisherman said:wow those are some nice pike there i honestly thought the fox held little pike yeah them back waters are great there is one on the des plains by me and it is massive its like a huge lake attached to the river im going to fish it when we take my dads friends boat should be good
I'm not that familiar with the DPR, but depending on where the creek originates and how much flow it has there could be just about anything in that pond. You might want to get the opinion of someone more familiar with that area. But I say as long as you're catching fish just enjoy it and who knows you might just come up with a walleye or two.DPRFisherman said:no problem man but on the thought of back waters when im sitting around i always think about this well i know a runoff pond on the dpr and it is there due to a massive flood in the 60s or 70s there is still a creek connected to it but the fish cannot escape due to huge rocks everywere blocking the entrance plus the creek is very shallow but not the point my thought was if theres pike carp cats bass blue gill crappie is there walleye or sauger id love to pull one out of there
