David Mullen caught and released this 40-inch, 16-pound northern pike earlier this month from a subdivision pond in Romeoville.
“I wasn’t using a leader and it was an insane fight,” he messaged.
Mullen was using a BOOYAH spinner bait on 17-pound NanoFil line on new spinning gear.
“Something I will never forget,” he messaged.
