The below story is yet again a story that could be Fact, Fiction or half Truth.
Story as Received in Email:
For those of you who don’t know where Big Bass Lake is, it’s in Iosco County Michigan. Probably the biggest nearby town would be Hale, about three miles away…a beautiful little lake full of Pike.
You will never, ever – see me swim in Big Bass Lake…
This is NOT a fish story !
This is a new record Northern Pike in Michigan .. It was caught on Big Bass Lake.
Check this thing out.. The man (in the photos below), was fishing, and caught a 36″ Pike.
As he was reeling it in, a 56″ – 55 lb Pike tried to eat it !!!!!
He landed them both in the same net. The last picture is unreal.
As a resident of Michigan I have not heard about this massive fish until today. I want to see what is out there for stories. I have fished that area before have seen some big one’s but nothing of that size. I assume we will hear more and more stories as time goes on but for now I am hoping this is a fish in a lake near my cabin, the story holds true and I will actually get to see the fish mounted. Let me know what you have heard.
