Not a trophy fish ,..... just an average 27" pike , but yet another one under the belt of my homedesigned "DinnerBell" spoon ,........ in this case made from copper sheet , not stainless steel as most of them !
I hardly ever saw a pike so deeply hooked on a spoon ,...... she must have swallowed it right from behind .
That spoon model turned out to be perfectly suiting that "Alster" lake , located right in the city of Hamburg/Germany , only 6' to 8' deep , with shallow banks and quite snaggy .
I've been fishing that spoon model frequently for more than one year in there now , caught the most fish on them and only lost two spoons so far , .......versus the loss of quite a few other spoon models , some crankbaits and even glide baits as well .
Truly one of the #1 lure models from my stable;) !
Sorry , the picture showing myself with that average pike did not turn out too well , had to shoot it with the automatic timer function of my camera laid on top of my tackle bag !
