While there have been many die-hard, skilled anglers over the years who have tried in their millions to land a bigger fish, there has yet to be a bigger pike than the one caught by Lothar Louis on October 16th 1986. The interesting thing about the German angler’s record breaking catch is that when he set out on that morning his plan was to aim for roach and carp, not pike. However, he was an optimist and was in the habit of starting a day of fishing with 15 casts using his pike rod. One just the 3rd cast that morning, his optimism was given a mighty reward.
Lothar had something of a battle on his hands as he had to wrestle with the fish and due to its size, he couldn’t net it. So, rather than losing the catch of a lifetime, he pushed his hands inside the fish’s gill covers to pull it on to the boat. According to an interview with Lothar after catching the monstrous, 55 pound pike, he had no idea it had bitten deeply into his hands as he lifted it onto the bank because of the sheer excitement.
