While the internet is full of wondrous things, most people just use it to look at funny pictures. I can’t say I blame them, who doesn’t like funny pictures? Personally, I’m partial to funny pictures that include fish. Here are a few magical #fishflopfriday shots from Instagram.

We have been pretty spoiled when it comes to pike fishing. We have had the opportunity to fish some of the best pike water in the world, not once, but twice! Originally we visited Sportsman’s Lodge on Little Vermilion Lake in 2005 and we were promised big pike. Not only did we catch big pike, but we got a lot of pike. Finding fish was easy on our first trip, but in 2007 things were very different on Little Vermilion. We faced extremely cold weather and high winds at the end of May and leading into June. We battled through snow and rain early on, and by our last day of fishing the sun was shining and the weather warmed up. We didn’t catch as many fish, but we had several fish over 40 inches, and a couple that weren’t too far from 50.
