  1. Every fisherman knows you see some weird things, hot or cold, but I think this pike bit more than he could swallow. Fish almost always try to surface to rid themselves of something no longer wanted, I think this one was no where big enough to swallow that bass and took a break too close to the surface. He was kinda like some people we know about here, He bit off more than he could chew. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5C9LpDgXLw
