be sure you have a good pair of long needle nose pliers. And don't lift the fish with your fingers by the lower jaw as is typically done with bass.

I've heard divers say that if you ever saw the size of the northern pike in Lake George people wouldn't to skinny dipping there!

I saw one which was landlocked in a pool beneath a dam that ate everything that came over the dam. This monster had to be nearly six feet long with jaws like a tiger. It was bigger than some Muskies I have seen. It was waiting for its next meal.

Technically, pike and their toothy relatives do have gripping teeth. Unlike some fish like sharks and piranhas that remove hunks of flesh, pike typically bite, hold, kill, then swallow their prey whole. However, they do have many sharp teeth that will easily cut lines and the fingers and hands of people that are not careful

Yes you are correct and technically so is Jim V. I'm just having some good-natured fun with Mr. Hardscrabble.

Went with some advice here and spent 7 days moving between Piseco, Mud Lake and Spy Lake and the fishing was amazing. Obviously no Northern Pike in those waters but the Bass and Pickerel fishing was excellent. Broke my PB Largemouth record for the second time this year and hooked into tons of really nice Smallmouth and Pickerel. Will put up a full trip report with pictures and a video soon! Thanks again to everyone who was tossing advice and locations at me! Lots of future trips planned based on this thread.
