Depends on the size of the pike, Ebbie. Some of them can bite real nasty. I once was trying to get the lure out of one's mouth and lowered the line and my Newfie buddy hollered "STOP!" He took the rod and said "Watch this sonnyboy, cityboy, mainlander." He took a stick about an inch in diameter, held it in front of the pike's face and lowered the the fish to the ground. It's tail hit the ground and it propelled itself to the stick and bit it in two. Me buddy says, "Yer welcome fer yer fingers Sport." "Sport" is what they calls them fellahs from down south in the big city.

Maybe I shouldn't but, WTH... he threw the pike into the woods and said, "Reel in faster and ya won't be wastin our time, eh?" I asked why he didn't throw it back in. He said, "You'll just catch the boney fucker again and we wants is TROUT, ROIGHT? Besides, it'll bring bears." I asked if it was bear season and he said, "No. But it's self-defense season." Always thinkin, eh?

Like the Newf in Texas... The Texan asks the Newfie where he's from and the Newfie says, "You know where New York is?" the Texan says, "Yeh, yeh, I know where that is" The Newfie says, " Well b'y, you just drive north of there about 6 hours, turn right for 3 hours and catch a 6 hour ferry and you're there in Newfoundland."

The Texan says "That's got to be close to China!"

The Newfie thinks about this and then says, "I think you might be right. I work with a Chinese guy and he goes home for lunch every day!"

That is typical Newfie humour.
