Monster pike long 107 cm caught two times in 3 days




This is a story about one monster pike 107 cm long, caught 2 times in 3 days. First time by friend Zlatko Ranogajec 3 days ago (on a big Monarch Dok Jerk lure). Yesterday I had luck to fight the monster fish again. This time pike took Duo Realis Jerkbait 120 SP in a gold color. The rest of equipment: rod - Okuma Dead Eye Walley 7'6", 6-12 lbs, line -  Power Pro 20lb, and Shimano Aero 3000 reel. Duo Realis Jerkbait 120SP is a great lure for pike. I like to lead it with a lot of twitch and pause action. The big momma inhaled it deeply just in a pause time. After few seconds I  knew that I had a big pike on the end of my line, and now my personal best pike record  is improved for 2 cm. By the way there is a photo of one smaller pike caught by Igor. All fish are still swimming in the lake, so we hope to see em again with some more centimeters ;) Thanks to Zlatko for the information that pike are active these days, and to Igor for photos with a monster fish ;)

that's true :)2 years ago the biggest pike were above 90 cm in this lake.
in last two years pike were grown for 10 - 20 cm in average, and now catches over 100 cm are not uncommon ;)
