Big Jacks in Sunset Country!

Notorius? Nasty? Notable? Nice? Noble? Whatever you like to call these massive Northern Pike, I'd call these anglers 'Happy'.


Northern pike roam the waters of most lakes in Northwest Ontario. While some anglers don't like to catch these slimy fish, catching a huge northern pike is on my bucket list. Just look at these beasts. They are massive! While many fish are caught and released right away, we are fortunate enough to view these northerns that were photographed before they were released.

The following northern pike were all caught and released in Ontario's Sunset Country in 2014.
