Just having some fun in the backwaters of a pike lake. The storm was circling and the pike were on fire so it was too tempting to just sit and wait. We snuck in a few more takers before the lightning was directly overhead. :) If you’re wondering, that’s a new stick from Orvis: Superfine Glass 6 weight with fighting butt. So far it has handled 10+lb pike, hauling them out of the reeds and heavy cover, no issues. (And for the person that’s going to say it, no, none of these fish were that big, obviously). It’s officially the pike/streamer rod in the collection. Awesome to load and launch. :)
