The World Record Northern Pike was caught in the Great Sacandaga Lake in 1940 by Pete Dubuc  The 46-pound, 2-ounce monster reigned as the planet's biggest pike until 1979, when it was nudged into second place by a European fish.

  While the odds of catching another 40-something pike in Great Sacandaga appear to be slim, numerous 30-pounders have been verified since Dubuc's time, and trophy specimens in the 20- to 25-pound class are hooked each season.

Amsterdam pike expert Ron Kolodziej, who knows the reservoir as well as anyone, is convinced it holds dozens of pike in the 40-pound class.

     Certainly, the optimum time to nail such whoppers is in May, when many Great Sacandaga pike are still hanging around shoreline spawning areas; but summer fishing can be productive, too.

     The deeper northeast prong, with the village of Bachelorville on its east shore, is the deeper of the two and therefore the likeliest spot to prospect for trophy pike in summer
