I don't think this should be counted as a catch. I think the fish committed suicide.
This bad boy was caught on Rainy lake!! This is the new record in Canada. Check this thing out.. The last picture is unbelievable! This guy (in the photos below), was fishing and caught a 36" Pike. As he was reeling it in, a 56" Pike tried to eat it! He brought them both in on the same net. Awesome catch on a river in Canada - 55lbs - 56 inches.
