What great memories you have. I've only been to the Lunge Lodge once, so I know very little about the place. I started this web site because I am a friend of Mike Oneill and wanted to help him out with a site. I hope to learn more, though, someday.

I would love to see your method of cleaning pike. I love fishing for them, especially around my home river in PA, the Allegheny. But I never, ever keep them because of the bones.
