Johnny Menkey was telling fellow fishermen how he hooked four ten-pound northern pike in three days on Round Lake, then got skunked, not even a nibble for a couple of weeks; Harry Holck landed a 41-inch, 21-pound northern pike at Indian Lake. The lunker put up a 15-minute battle; Art Pasquarella landed four nice walleyes in four casts at Saratoga Lake; Leo Nedvidek pulled a 24-pound , 48-inch northern pike through the ice on Sacandaga Reservoir. He hooked the dandy fish on a golden shiner. Mike and Andy Mashuta were fishing with him; Mickey Petrolle, a 12 year-old junior high student, landed a record-breaking northern in Colville, New York. The lunker weighed 13.5 pounds. And Joe Syzdek caught a 24-pound northern pike at Sacandaga Reservoir. It was 46.5 inches long. And just think about all the big ones, and I mean really BIG ones, that got away.
