During my many wasted hours of reading up on pike fishing, I stumbled across a photo of another monstrous pike on a Netherlands fishing site. I wanted to know more about the big fish, but the entire site was of course in Dutch. After translating the text with Babel Fish (of course), I was able to determine that this fish is a mystery fish, its size and weight unknown. Rumor has it the fish is from Italy, which would make it the second huge pike we have seen from the boot shaped country. I guess there is more to Italy then soccer, pasta and super cars after all.
If you have an details on this photo, please let us know.
On the topic of mystery pike, I’d love to know details about the other Italian pike too…
This one should be filed under What Not to do With Your Fish. Apparently these guys from Poland thought it would be a good idea to give an under-aged pike some alcohol. Apart from the pike being underage, there is some kind of law about cruelty to animals. Maybe this is where the term Drunk as a Fish comes from. PETA is investigating the case, but rumor has it that these guys are with PETA.
I can’t help but wonder if that would make a pike taste better.
Gadgetgirl sent along a link for this great fishing product created by artist Chrissy Angliker. I’m not sure how much line the Fishing Knuckles can hold, but it appears to be more then enough to handle all sorts of fish. The Knuckles come in several colours, so they are not only useful, but fashionable.
Chrissy appears to be a fan of fishing, in addition to Fishing Knuckles, she has a section on her page called Badass Fishing. Sounds like our kinda girl! I’d love to get my hands on these, but they are only available in Brooklyn, New York according to the site. If you live in Brooklyn, check out The future Perfect to pick yourself up a set of knuckles and get us a pair while you are at it!
