Timm Twardoski was recently fishing for walleye at Canyon Ferry around the Hellgate area in about 30 feet of water. It was a nice day with a clear, blue sky. He was only fishing with 10lb fluorocarbon fishing line, and when he got a bite, he thought it was a “pig of a walleye” at first. However, it started head shaking and running, and not like a trout.
Twardoski was by himself, and the fish would not fit in net, so he leaned over with pliers to get it in. It ended up being quite a pike, and it took a long time to get in the boat, and he had a lot of fun doing it! Before this day, Timm had never caught a pike in deeper water like that.
Excellent catch, and what a great memory!
