Great report! I am soooooooo jealous! We have a lot of pickerel in my area but not enough big pike to even think about having a day like that. I get such a kick out of the way pickerel charge a fly or lure and attack it repeatedly, even as you lift it out of the water. I can only imagine what it would be like to have that kind of action with big pike. Just to see that big push of water when they first start to move . . .
