My family fishes. Our preference is to heave ‘man sized’ lures into the cold waters in Canada in search of the elusive tiger known as a Northern Pike. The pike is the big dawg in freshwater North America, the top tier aquatic predator. In the ocean, the fish we call a monster would be but a minnow to many of the oceanic flesh eaters. I guess this guy needs a big pole to capture his version of a monster fish. I would have loved to mosey up along side this man and fish with him because fishing is in my blood. And I would like to know if I could handle the really big pole.
