Pikeminnow, Northern
21 inches, 3 lbs, 7 ounces

Oh me, oh my! The pikeminnow (along with Peamouth and Largescale suckers) have returned to the mouth of creeks at Lake Koocanusa, a reservoir before the Kootenai River. This hog did not fail to disappoint, and put up a great fight. Some measurements, a pic or two, and he was swimming back into the depths.

I gotta say, I look up to you guys with all the spectacular fish you catch. I really appreciate your comments! My neck-of-the-woods does have a few gems, like these Pikeminnow.

Man you get some cool looking fish out there.

Pikeminnows are so rad. Such a shame that hardly anybody gets that. I dream of catching all species of Pikeminnow....


Fishn sure is neat
