Three PB's in pike-perch in the same evening!

Last Wednesday evening my friend, his family and I were were fishing for pike-perch in Lake Saimaa waters near Ristiina. We caught seven pikes between 1-3 kg before the pike-perch start to strike. Our result was 7 pike-perch of which four we released. The total weight of the 4 biggest was 19.15 kg!!

First fish was very nice 3,3 kg

Second fish on, My wife's turn to fight.

New PB for My wife 3,3kg

Next came a brutal double header and we had a long fight before these two giant pike-perch surrendered.
Two new PBs after this double header, for me 7.1 kg for my friend 5.45 kg. Unforgettable fishing!

We decided to release bigger one after quick weighting and couple pictures, because We already have cooking fish on the boat and this kind monster was very important for this fish species in the future. We gave to fish recover in water for a while and Our feeling was avesome when it went very strongly kicking back in the deep. Smaller of double header was badly hurt and blood coming out on it gills, only that reason We must make decision to keep it.
Absolutely fantastic fishing evening in Lake Saimaa.
