Jo brought this fish in all by herself and it ended up measuring 40″ long and weighed 22 lb….well done Jo!!  The pike was caught on a florescent red black jig tipped with minnow 10 ft water fishing 12 lb test line on a homemade tip up. It took Jo 5 min to bring it up through the hole. The pike was caught in Brunswick Lake, ON. We have to give the guide Bob Balantyne the assist. Joe is getting the pike mounted. By the way, the Balantyne’s enjoyed a nice 20 inches of snow last night!
