Daryl Dean with his daughters, Ashley (left) and Hayley (right).

  Daryl had his daughters out fishing at Ford's Coulee on the May long when Ashley hooked into this pike.  The girls often fish with Daryl and are more accomplished anglers then the average 11 and 6 year old.  Ashley wanted to catch a big pike and knew this one was over 20 pounds when she saw that it was as long as her sister is tall.  

I predict in a few years Daryl will have two young ladies that will be arguing over who gets to fish the next walleye tournament with their Dad.

  Congratulations Ashley on a nice fish.  Hayley, are you going to try to catch a bigger fish?
