got out today around 8:30. fished all day. went fishing at the broken oar too. couldnt catch a thing, till i caught a small 4 inch bass. on a twister. after the oar, i went back under the bridge. The water is dingy and has alot of fallen logs in there from the floods and storms, wich i got snagged on all day . lost my new husky jerk too ...oh well. after a while i caught a little 10 inch bass on a jerk bait, then, about an hour later, i threw a husky jerk, and caught a 34 inch pike. , it shrunk 3 inches, so in the pic, its 31. i had it in my bag driving about 6 miles on my bike, so it shrank a bit..

:D I didnt want to be the first one to say Tony! Anyways, dude NICE FISH! are you going to eat it or are you getting this one mounted as well? Im not a big fan of suffering your pike in your bag however. :? or even keeping it. but thats my opinion and as far as I know you did nothing wrong. congrats

Poooor fish. Never gets to live, breed, get bigger, or be caught again anymore.

Take that camera with you next time. Grab some pictures and let those poor fish go. Kroger sells fish that taste just as good. Would be easier riding bicycle home also.

Must be the caveman instincts kicking in. I notice that about people. Something in them that just can't bring themselves to let a fish go.

Personally, I would NEVER eat a fish out of any local river. Do you know where the stuff in your toilet goes when you flush? Your about to eat it...lol Let me know how it tastes...

heres my question.... IS IT LEGAL TO KEEP GAMEFISH OF REGULATED SIZE!!!!!!

just because u guys dont keep a fish every one in a while, dont mean others cant, like larry said. FYI, i practice catch and release EVERY DAY!
i dont keep bass, because they dont taste good, even soo, i would let them goo.
i keep walleye,(18 inches or bigger) best eating fish.
i keep northerns ( sometimes) only if they arent too big
i keep cats, because they taste good, only small ones.
i keep bluegill, only if they are 8 inches or bigger.
i keep crappie only if they are 10 inches or bigger, and if i only catch like one or two, i let them back! :roll:
i also keep perch if they are 12 inches or bigger.

it isnt like i harvest fish, just so i can harvest fish! i am aloud my daily limit of fish, and i doo EAT fish.
also, i ate that pike tonight, it tasted really good. and creighton, dont critisize ppl by the way they look k?
i told bazzilla to grow up because, he was refering to immiture content and it was pretty pathetic :wink:

:roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:
