Ice fishing in western Montana - pike was the big catch

Five pound pike

Successful day on the ice

Ten pound pike!
Pictures say it all. Thanks for forwarding these photos to us Mike!


  1. Nice catch! I'm curious how this fish got their fins to help them swim with this cold and icy water. I just want to give it a try fishing in a snow. But I'm afraid that bulky ice ground would break if I step on it. I can't imagine how cold it is.

    Beautiful site! Thanks for visiting our blog and commenting. In December when these photos were taken in the Seeley Swan valley, it was VERY cold. Not so much any more. I wouldn't be out on the ice now!
