Pictures of Fish, Page 3

Believe it or not, sometimes I submit to the weather's mandate that I fish for lesser species than the noble salmonids. The temperatures soar in August and the trout take refuge in hidden spring seeps and the unfortunate hours preceding dawn. I yield to nature's demands, attaching beastly things to my tippet and lobbing them at the likes of muskellunge and smallmouth bass. Oh, life is hard!

My dad was messing around with this pike for about 10 minutes with various goofy weedless lures with mediocre hooking quality, and he kept missing it.  Finally he threw on the only lure a spin fisherman ever needs, the Heddon Lucky 13 (my favorite for many years before I started fly fishing), and he caught the fish on the first cast.  Not only did he hook it--he also snared it. From Minto Flats in Alaska.

Small burbot, but tasty!  If you think in units of brook trout, even the smallest burbot is a lot of dinner. From the Tanana River in Alaska.
