Floating an unfamiliar river for some super aggressive pike. I searched around for a while, and then found one of the best pike holes I've fished in a while!
Fly rod: 9' 8wt Orvis Clearwater rod (4 piece) Reel: Waterworks‑Lamson Liquid Fly Reel 3.5 Line: 8wt scientific anglers fly line, 20lb tapered flouro leader with a 20lb RIO wire tippet.
Rod/reel setup: -Quantum Octane 6'6" medium heavy action rod with an Abu Garcia silver max and 30lb braided line, connected to a 27lb 9" steel leader. ***The rod and reel I was using is a cheap setup, and I wouldn't necessarily recommend it. I only use it at the river in case something happens, I'd rather break that than an expensive rod/reel.
Ice fishing for northern pike with tip ups. This pike is one of the biggest I've caught, it wasn't as long as I first thought, but the pike weighed about 9 pounds and was full of eggs. Northern pike is one of my favorite fish to catch and eat. Thanks for watching, subscribing, and supporting this channel. If you like this video please give a thumbs up and share it with others.
