A really big fish

A morning temperature of -29 degrees didn't stop some fishing friends from heading to Eleven Mile Reservoir last week. And their disregard for the cold paid off. Noel Kessler of Colorado Springs caught this 38-inch trophy northern pike within 10 minutes of drilling a hole in the ice. His friend, Darrell Lindquist, also got lucky, catching a 27-inch pike that day. The friends, who were with Terry McKenna (who took the picture) have been fishing at Eleven Mile for years, going an average of once a week year-round. Lindquist reports this fish is going on the wall.
