I received this photo from Ray Thompson. I noted in the email sent to me that credit for the photo was not given to anyone. It was guessed, however that the pike was taken in the Coal City area from flooded strip pit. Ray commented that it reminded him of the 20 pound northern that was ca[tured in Willmington many years ago. He said that the so called "Milrace Monster" was eating full grown ducks!
We've often heard that big pike and musky will take birds. Well here's one that doesn't have to worry about this fall's hunting season. If anyone know who to give credit for this photo, please let us know so we can say Thanks for sharing.
