 Rafal Pisarski from Queens, NY is pictured here with a very large northern pike. Rafal was fishing on Lake George Memorial Day weekend 2006. He was using a Banjo Plastic Minnow.

 Much to his surprise this monster pike decided his bait and its presentation were too good to be ignored and he slammed the bait. Luck was on Rafal's side, because he was not using a wire leader at the time.

 After a fierce battle the monster pike was able to be landed and after posing for a few photos was quickly released to fight another day.

Rafal Pisarski caught this monster northern pike from Lake George

Lake George Fishing

  Lake George is located approximately 50 miles north of Albany, NY. in the Adirondack Mountains. The lake is 32 miles in length, and has a maximum depth of around 200 feet. The lake is 1 to 3 miles wide in places and has close to 200 islands of various sizes.

   Lake George provides fishing opportunities for the following species of fish. lake trout, landlocked salmon, rainbow trout, northern pike, largemouth, smallmouth bass, and a variety of panfish. The natural bait on Lake George is comprised of smelt and ciscoes. At one point Lake George held the NY state record for Landlocked Atlantic Salmon at 19 pounds. But that record is now held by Mike Dandino who caught an Atlantic Salmon of 24 pounds and 15 ounces on April 5, 1997 from Lake Ontario.
