Nathan Lafleur of Devils Lake released this massive northern pike Wednesday evening on Devils Lake. Lafleur, who caught the fish on a fly rod, said the pike measured 51.5 inches. He says he never considered keeping the fish, even though it was longer than the state record pike, a 48-inch, 37-pound, 8-ounce pike caught in 1968 on Lake Sakakawea. (Submitted photo)
