    Well here's a couple gators that I had caught last year. They're not as big as the stormy, monster that I caught in July, but never-the-less just as exciting. All three were about the same size. They all were 36" in total length and they all were explosive on the water. The summer photo is my first fish taken on a figure eight. This fish fought so hard that I'd hate to see what a high 40" fish would do to me. Pure explosive power at the boat. The other two fish were caught this past fall. Each one was caught after snow had fallen. The one with the nice autumn leaves in the background was caught on a cisco kid...perch pattern. While the other fish was caught on a spitfire...sucker pattern. Every fish was released to fight another day and become bigger. Hopefully next year I'll be able to tangle with a couple bigger boys, but I won't complain about the fish that I was able to tangle with. Hope you guys enjoy the pictures. I'm counting the days until musky opener occurs. Pretty pathetic eh?

    catch ya later,
    Krappie


    P.S. Hey Greybeard, make sure you don't show your buddy that caught that monster on those pictures that ya sent me. He probably would laugh.he,he,he. Thanks for sharing with me!!!!

    The next state record will be caught by someone IN DePere. I've had Bertha on, but she's still out there. Maybe that musky hunter from DePere will catch her one day. lol.

    Krappie, Up here in Bayfield County we hook something like that and we just shake it off at the side of the boat and keep casting for a real fish!

    Just exaggerating a little bit.. Nice Photos!!

    Krappie: Those are 2 nice fish, man.

    I'm gonna print this one out to show Gregg. He'll love it!
    The one's he caught were sow's up in the tailwaters below the dam...spawning, he guessed.
    We have one smallish-type Lake south of us that has some real HAWGS in it. The State record was caught there some years ago (34lbs if I recall), then the record was broken a few months later. Guess that qualifies as "bait-fish" for you Wisconsonite Der. HAR!
    Did you ever get down to the Webster Lakes in Northern Indiana?
    What's the biggest Northern you've caught?

    Just thought I would jump in here, biggest Northern I have ever boated was 18 1/2 lbs. Dont know how long as I released him after some pictures and an electronic scale weight.
    I will try to scan some pics in and post em.
    Caught that monster at Red Lake in Ontario.

    Hi Greybeard,
    I'm sorry I took so long to get back to you. We've been busier than you know what for the last couple months at work. My internet time is suffering from it. My largest northern to date is a 36" fish, but I would imagine it'll be a matter of time until i hook into a 40" fish while fishing Ski's. I just started to do some spring fishing in the channel of Sturgeon Bay, where the big sows come into from Lake Michigan and the Bay of Green Bay to spawn. It''s not uncommon for a guy to hook into some fish that will go 20 lbs. I would venture a guess that it'll be a matter of time until I hook into one of those beauties. That would be my best chance of catching a trophy northern pike in Wisconsin. It's tough to catch large Pike on inland lakes, but that all changes on the great lakes. Take care and I'll catch ya later, gator,

    Krappie
