Had a nice trip up to Leech Lake, MN last week. Got my first (and likely only) silver pike! That was a pretty cool surprise. While perch fishing it came after my dad's jig/minnow a few minutes earlier and we thought it was a musky. Hooked it a couple minutes later and was all excited about getting my first musky, then noticed it was actually a silver pike! Very cool looking fish.
Also got this dandy 28" northern while perch fishing as well. Always fun to feel a little tick, set the hook and have your rod double over and have the drag start singing! And I know this is a pike photo thread, but 10-15 minutes after that one, I got this 25" walleye. Both while fishing solo because my dad had had enough fishing for the day unfortunately.
