Can anybody who was out on sodus today get me a report on ice? Or anywhere for that matter... Looking for one last trip tomorrow

what a day for big fish yesterday. went to conesus in the am. set up 6 flags for pike, 5 of them had shiners and the 6th had a 9in dead golden shiner. At 730 flag goes off it is the 9 inch dead shiner. I get over to it and it is not moving . soon as I kneel down it starts to take off, I set the hook and it just stops me with some big head shakes. I then managed to get him to the whole and I see nothing but head. As I'm fighting him at the hole I get his head just about in the hole and he swims out. It is the biggest tiger ever caught. 38 1/4 in. long snake real thin . About 3 hours later I get another flag I set the hook on this one and it feels like a good one again. I start pulling in the line and pulling wondering how far this fish went before I saw the flag up. It gets to the hole and again I see nothing but head. While I'm fighting the fish at the hole the gaff is at my shanty so with all the excess line I have on the ice I hang onto the line and make it to my shanty . I then look at the hole that's now 30 yards away and thank I should just drop the line and book to the whole as fast as I can, so I did and it was still on. With a short fight at the hole the giff came handy. My biggest tiger and my longest pike.
for those that don't like both dead fish I was in a tournament. or I would have let them go . They will be eaten and skull mount. 1487520789195.jpg1487520794625.jpg1487520797484.jpg

Terrific and good eating too.  How long was the pike?.....jk

thanks !!! 38in . was tough to tell what one was bigger. pike was 9.56lbs and tiger was 9.43lbs. couldn't believe how skinny both fish were but the pike was a male and tiger is just a skinny eating machine.

Still nice fish.  We went out today on a local lake here in north central Pa and we are probably done for the year here.  Stay safe everyone!  This has been a good post, thanks all.....jk

Nice post, and a nice pair of fish. I think their fate (the fillet board) is perfectly appropriate, tournament or not!

stopped at long pond and talked to a buddy who was out fishing long pond. he had a couple nice perch but fishing was slow . entertainment on the other hand was good , u see lots of things sometimes. a guy fished out of his boat while his friend fished right next to him on the ice. the guy used a shovel to push himself out and the rope to pull himself in... if it's that bad he should just stay home. 1489864241868.jpg
