hey everyone, i just got back from a couple hours of trolling at ladue. about 45 minutes in to the troll i hooked into a MONSTER pike. i was out by myself in my little 10 and a half footer, but managed to get it in the boat. it turns out it actually bit off one of the trebles on my white wally diver with purple stripes. it was a great fight, the fish seemed about 20 or 25 pounds at least and probably around 40 inches. it was truly a monster, however i wasnt thinking right obviously and put it on a metal stringer. it immediately unclipped itself and swam off. anyways, im heading out tomorrow for some more (walleyes or pike), and just wanted to let you all know about my catch. any input or comments would be appreciated.
