This is a Connecticut river northern pike, a subspecies currently being considered for listing under the Federal endangered species Act. Caught on a Smithwick perfect 10 rogue using a slow steady cranking retrieve after long casts using a spinning rod, 20lb test braid, tied to 2 ft 20 lb test fluoro leader tied to ~18 inches 20 lb test surflon micro supreme camo wire and a small cross-lock snap. Thanks to Paul, Mitch and all the organizers and those who donated prizes for a great event. Thanks to Riverroamer for a good day of fishing and the net job. It was good fun talking and meeting others after fishing!
