What a wonderful day of Fishing

The father and son fishing team of Zehrudin (L) and Edin Mujic (R) of Grand Rapids, MI, show off a monster Rogue River pike. The Squire reporters, Cliff and Nancy Hill had the good fortune to watch this twosome boat three legal sized pike in a 30-minute span Sunday morning, September 12. This lunker was aprox. 36” long and weighed (est.) 12 lbs. Edin told us it was a perfect morning of fishing on the Rogue River upstream of the Rockford Dam. Between 7 and 11 a.m. they boated seven legal sized pike. True sportsmen, they returned all the fish to the river.
