Big northern pike speared on Rainy Lake

My friend Wyatt and I were out spearing for the afternoon. We had seen a few small fish, but were waiting for something decent to come along. After waiting about an hour, we had a big fish come in. He turned around and grabbed our sucker minnow. Wyatt threw and hit his mark. Realizing how big the fish was, I had Wyatt run to the truck grab another spear. I hit her again just before the other spear came out. This was Wyatt's biggest northern of his life.
