This is the new record in Canada.Caught on the Winnipeg River,
in Manitoba.
Check this thing out..
This guy , was fishing and caught a 36" Pike -
as he was reeling it in, a 56" Pike tried to eat it!!!!! He brought
them both in on the same net.

Awesome catch - 55lbs-56 inches.

I hope I never see a fish that big, especially with sharp teeth - I'd probably never go near the water again.

Awesome catch. Does this type of catch count in the record books? I guess the 3-foot pike could be construed as 'bait'?

I'm originally from Winnipeg and can atest to the pike fishing in Manitoba, but that is a freeking alligator. Probably pretty hard to cast a 36" weighted streamer. You would think that a 36" pike would be pretty safe in that area, but makes me wonder what else is in those waterways. There's alot of lakes there.

What a beast! I've seen that top picture all over the Internet, but hadn't seen the other two.

I know there are some pike pushing that size here in interior Alaska, too, though not in the vicinity of Fairbanks or anywhere else on the road system for that matter.
