Alicia Perkerewicz of Sherack, Minn., released this big northern pike during a recent fishing excursion on Lake of the Woods. “My biggest fish yet!” writes Perkerewicz, who caught the pike on a tip-up. “39.75 (inches) or bigger. Didn’t get an exact measurement as we didn’t have a big enough fish ruler!”
