GREAT SACANDAGA LAKE FISHERIES FEDERATION INC
The Great Sacandaga Lake once held the distinction of home to the world record, current North American record, northern pike. This 46lb. 2 oz. behemoth was caught by Peter DuBuc in September 1940. Today, pike over 40" are considered trophies by most anglers. To acknowledge the accomplishment of anglers who have achieved this, we will be acknowledging them by posting photos of the anglers with their fish.
To qualify for the honor of having your catch published on the 40+ Trophy Pike page your fish must measure at least 40 inches. Send us a picture with your name and the names of other anglers with you, address, date, time, length, weight if possible, location, tackle used, and if you released your fish back into the lake.
You can email you picture and information to email@example.com We look forward to your submissions.
