Northern PikeMinnow... never heard of it.  What'd it hit?  Is it just a coarse fish?

Hi Don,
Northern Pikeminnow is a native coarse fish to BC. Locals call it "squaw fish". It is the biggest minnow and it is strictly carnivorous.
 They can take almost any smaller lure, but because they are little slow- the presentation also needs to be slow. There are other kinds of pikeminnows in the US and they grow much bigger  :)

Nice fish once again!

I'm going to have to promise MY wife something, or I won't get out enough to stand a chance of winning!!!!!!!! I don't care if the lawn dies.... in fact, that might help.

You're making me nervous :D

Mike, I'm assuming from how you're dressed that it's cold out and am curious what kind of gloves you're using.  I have a pair of neoprene gloves from my cold water scuba diving days (no more - tropics only now!) that work great as long as I let water inside so they work as designed but without the water inside they're not very efficient.  I don't like having my hands soaking wet for long periods and am looking for an alternative.  Maybe others on the forum have solutions they've found - eh, what?

Thanks guys!
DGW, I'm using the 3mm MEC neoprene gloves. They are OK but not waterproof, will keep your hands at tolerable temp till about +5C (when wet) plus wind.
If you don't like your hands wet, I recommend some of the waterproof biking gloves like:

Good suggestion, Mike.  I'll check them out next time I'm in MEC.
