I have never caught a Pike but they sound somewhat like a Red. I have never caught anything that fights as hard as a Red.

A 15" Red can make you think it is a much bigger fish than it is. A 25-30" Red, now that's FUN.

They fight like Reds, but they have a mouth full of teeth!!!

TAC, Love the flounder, Nothing better than some fresh fried flounder.

Punt66.... Make sure you get some pictures.

pound for pound , nothing fights like a rainbow trout. Not to mention the many leaps out of the water.

Ok, i am not working today because of some medical tests so i will catch up with the pics. For starters this is my tool of choice as of late. Cell phone cam. I was on the road on the way to Florida. The sun was high and the boat was sparkling so a snapped a shot. Didnt have my camera in hand though.
