10.0 lb. Northern Pike caught by David Adams fishing in Vermont on 03/16/08
36.0" / 10.0 lb. Northern Pike caught by David Adams fishing on Sunday March 16, 2008 at 12:07 near North Hero in Grand Isle County, Vermont (VT), United States North America

I had placed a few tip ups, pretty much in the reeds in the back water swamp. I was using the Aqua Vu camera to find breaks in the reeds where I could place my bait. I found a nice hole with reeds around in about 2 feet of water. I droped my shiner in and walked away. I had to run to my truck for some auger fuel (let this be a lesson to fuel your auger first thing in the am) and when i got back, the flag was up. Being it was a small piece of bait i was certain it was a fish and not the bait pulling the line. Needless to say, the flag must have gone right after i headed to the truck, because the pike had just about spooled the tip up by the time that i got there. I knew the fish was there and I knew it was big. I was glad that i had 40# Dacron line directly attached to a 27# wire leader. So i knew that I could pull this fish out of the reeds. After about 10 minutes...the pike kept getting snagged and would work itself out and then i would gain more line. I was able to get it to the hole and take this picture of the fish. It was the 3rd big fish of the day, and it made for an exciting hour having 3 big fish come within 40 minutes of each other!
Caught some small pickeral and a few other 5 pounders so it was a great day at the Hog Hole!
