Out at Striker’s, the Diekman party are on to some hot pike fishing in the waters around Best Island. On Wednesday they landed a 41in northern, and on Thursday came close to reeling in another monster. The brothers watched helplessly as a pike broke their line at the leader yesterday. They said it was amazing to watch, and spent the rest of the day in the same area with only one thing on their minds -trying to catch the “enormous” specimen. As the overcast skies and light wind continue at SPL, I’m sure the Dieckman’s will have more stories for us next week…They might even get a second chance to reel in their elusive friend.
