I know Walnut had at least 1 big pike in it on April 1st, 1981. My father caught the short lived state record pike on a silver sonar jigging from the bridge. I always wondered just how much bigger they get than the 44"er he caught.:)

I fished the night your Dad caught that Pike, I was about 300 yards away. If I remember correctly, it was the record for only a day or two. The biggest ever in my boat, was 40" 18 lbs., on a 1/8 ounce jig and minnow, I have a picture somewhere. It was caught drifting for Walleyes, by the island North of the state park.

ezbite,
I was in my small boat last year. We wee throwing small Crappie spinners. We went to all bays at mosquito, even the shallow ones. Anyways, the spinnerbait was chartreus. A friend of mine caught a 28" pike out there. That was about in July.

Luredaddy,

Yes sir, the record lasted only a few days. Was beat by a fish from Lake of Four Seasons (not totally sure on the name). Russ Farmintino is my father who caught the fish. It sure made a pretty mount, and still has the sonar attached. I was 11 at the time and that night pretty much hooked me for life.:D

This one came from the NW corner south of the causeway in the cattails on a jig/twister while we were dipping for crappie. This is May 2000.




Notice it's not held three feet in front of me either. True size picture-39".

saw a few nice ones (or maybe the same one more than once) last fall/winter while duck hunting

south of the causeway, northwest bay, just below the little island or point that sticks out closest to the road....

he was back in the bay by the cattails sitting in the sun..........

I had a shotgun, not a rod

Lewzer,
Back then we spooled our jigging rods with 6# and 8# mono, I have no idea what the poundage was. The big flatheads are more exciting when we flatline mono in about 12', trolling Hot n Tots.
