richard on 7/16/2000 three freinds of mine caught a wierd looking fish
we live in new york in the finger lakes area on cayuga lake . this is the
best discription i can give you 30" to36" about 20 to 25 lbs dark green in
color, looked like plates or large scales on the head teeth about 1 to 1.5"
with open jaw the mouth did not close tight, no strips deffently not like
any pike i ever caught or seen . i am asking for help to point me in the
right direction to identify this fresh water monster. the fish was caught
from shore in about 15 to 20 ' of water.
thanx sincerly, Brian J Parish P.S. we never got the fish ashore
