Our good friend Rob Mitchell that fishes the St. Lawrence River, ON and who has been catching nice-size Crappie off the dock got a surprise the other day when this nice-size pike hit his panfish jig/grub under a slip-bobber.
No leader, no problem. Rob was able to land the fish and shot his friend Chris performing proper filleting and removing the “Y-bone” strip. Will release that video soon. Many people release pike as they think they are too bony or not very good eating. In-fact, the “Y-bones” are easy to remove and their flesh is deliceous!
