  1. Back in the late 90's I was floating around in an inner tube just north of Old Orchard cove when I saw this head sticking out of the water and heading my way. I thought it was a big turtle at first. He continued to come right at me as if stalking me. He got close enough that I finally had to direct some splashes at his mug. He turned away but kept circling in the area. I began to wonder if there was such a thing as fish rabies! This was late afternoon on a mid summer day. So I paddled my way back to shore, grabbed a net and jumped in my little runabout with my girlfriend. He was heading back south along the shore but we were able to track him down. We cruised up to him and my girlfriend was actually able to net him without much difficulty. I don't recall the exact length but he was a decent sized fished. Maybe 24"? I always wondered if he had something wrong but the fact we could net him suggests to me he was under some sort of duress. I don't know if that's the case with all pike\musky exhibiting this behavior but it may be a clue.
