Trevor Montgomery, from Prince Albert Saskatchewan, hooked into a giant 51.5” x 22” northern pike on Monday July 3rdon Tazin Lake. It bested his previous biggest pike by 4 inches. 4 days later, he almost beat that record by catching a 51” x 19”. In most places, a 40” or 41” pike is considered a trophy so to get two over 50 within a few days of each other on different ends of Tazin Lake is a rare feat.
“I don’t even know what to say,“ Montgomery said. “Wow, is all I can say. Blessed, that’s for dang sure.”
In 35 years of guiding in western Canada, he’d seen one pike over 51”, a 52.5” fish that one of his guests caught. And this week, he caught two on Tazin Lake.
The 51.5” pike was caught on a gold Cyclops made by Mepps and the 51” was on a silver Buchertail spinner.
