Saskatchewan Trophy Pike Fishing:
Black Bear Island Lake and the Churchill River are Monster Northern Pike Factories with many unbelievable trophies being caught and released all summer.
The high population of Walleyes has given Northern Pike in our water an endless and easily available food supply. As a result, monster trophy Northern Pike can be caught more frequently along with great numbers of smaller good eating size pike.
If you spend an afternoon pike fishing, you will catch so many Pike you will not be able to take the smile off your face. There are lots of good eating Northern Pike in the 2 to 4-pound range. The average size is an awesome 5 to 10-pounds. We can conservatively say you can easily catch 30 pike on an average day and on good days catch up to 75. The only reason the numbers are lower than the Walleye count is because it takes a lot longer to reel a big pike in.
Pike either get big or get eaten !!!
There are many trophy Pike caught in the 40 to 50-inch range, which depending on their girth, can weigh between 20 and 35-pounds. On occasion, guests catch pike over 50 inches with a few 52-inchers being caught and released in the last couple of years. Don't be surprised if you are reeling in a small Pike and a monster slams it. The big trophy Pike eat everything including themselves. There are even 20-pounders with battle scars from being attacked by bigger Pike.
Monster Northern Pike is one of the key attractions to our lodge so we strongly promote catch and release so guests can keep catching monster Pike for generations to come.
Barbless hooks are the choice of true anglers and sports fishermen. They do less harm while removing the hooks and cause less exhaustion and injury for the fish. It is often possible to release the fish without removing it from the water thus resulting in less handling stress and oxygen deprivation. By removing the barbs our hope is to help sustain a healthy fish population for generations to come.
