Fishing on the Mohawk River 2 weeks ago
« on: Feb 13, 2008, 06:33 PM »
This was the lunker that I caught, 40", 20lbs on a jigging rod, put up a heck of a fight


This is another fish my buddy caught that day, 34", Nice Pike


This pig came through that hole.. Amazing!


First fish of the day

Stellar pike!  I don't think the Mowhawk gets the recognition it deserves.  That should open a few eyes and give it some attention.  Again, great fish!

Awesome fish.  That must be a great fight on those rods.  How much ice?  Looks thin.

Great fish!!!  I'm here in the capital district, I think I know that area you were at.  Do well year round.  Send me a message if your ever around the area again.  Good Luck!

Hey dav,  I have to agree bigun's there.  Where do you generally go?  I'm outside of Albany always looking to go and meet new people, hopefully we can meet up sometime, even on the Mohawk we'll take the Lund!  Hope to see you out there.

I drove past the Mohawk over the weekend, completely open ... does not look good for ice fishing this year  :(
Just passing time until spring Stripers !

I live within earshot of the mohawk river.  I like staying dry - moving water+ice is not a combination I like.  The backwaters can be productive though ;)
