So after getting the lift, dock and boat all put in I decided to to cast a few times out in the lake while the kids were playing and ended up grabbing this 43 inch Northern Pike. Figured the shirt qualifies it as an MC related post :D

Thanks guys....I was caught off guard....Had to speed dial a couple neighbors and have them rush down with a net.

Its our small 180Acre ski/fish lake.

I am not big on fish.....walley n crappie are about all I do as far as cooking. So released it back so I can snatch it again when its 48inches. We have had a decent start to the year. Caught at least 5 over 4lb largemouths. We just have to have the lake committee step up on the vegetation control as we are getting killed this season with the mild winter and early warmth. We are pretty fortunate that the committee raises enough money during fundraising to handle that.


MG,

We are right down the road from the Chain, but not attached to it.

Can you eat the bass out of your lake/river?

We are pretty unfortunate on the Chattahoochee being south of Atlanta. There's some very bad pollution with mercury content that stays in the fish for its lifetime. They recommend no more then 2 fish a month so we just don't eat them at all.

Good to see you put it back into the gene pool.

The smaller ones (<30") are good eating.

Our lake is pretty clean and we don't have to worry to much about eating anything out of there. It's all good......as matter of fact we just got the lake status sport from the county board and we are in the green on everything except shoreline erosion. That's taking a beating and we need to tackle that fast.


I keep waiting for the ban wakeboats meeting.
