We spent the weekend at Ivik. Ivik is a group of camps on the northeast shore of Kobuk Lake (Hotham Inlet). While we were there Uyaana did some fishing. He caught his first Northern Pike with a reel. It was a very small pike.

He is making this face because a mosquito landed on his face right between his eyes and he couldn't wipe it off.

Can you see the mosquitoes swarming around him in the pictures?

That's a lot of mossies!

How'd you cook the pike?

Nice catch!

That IS a lot of mosquitoes!

I can't think of what's worse: mosquitoes or pike!

One sucks your blood and drives you mad, the other invades the spawning ground of actual edible fish.

However, fishing for pike was one of my favorite things to do when I was a kid -- they really can fight. But watch out for their evil pointy teeth!
