Wow... I had made a goal for myself to break the 5lb - mark for a pikeminnow. I went out to a small creek mouth, not expecting much from it. I tossed a 3/4 silver Little Cleo into the backwater nonchalantly. I felt the lure get bumped several times before this giant ate it! This is easily the biggest Northern Pikeminnow I have ever caught, landed, and held in my hands. A pristine specimen, my fellow anglers! Pikeminnow are awesome. Truly, a treasured and memorable catch. One can only walk away with a smile and pride.
P.S. This one still doesn't hold up to the Montana state record of 7.88 lbs and 27 inches!
