How long was this fish? Using an oldtime formula for calculating length from weight and weight from length, and from my years of fishing large Northern Pike in Canada, i can tell you that a 10 pound Pike would be close to 33 inches long.
Good to know. My arm is over 2 feet long (I'm over 6 feet tall) and, relative to that, I estimated this fish to probably be a little over 30 inches. If I was in my Lund, I'd have all the tools to measure and weigh but I was just in my little kayak with barely enough room for my large frame. :-) But, it sounds like I'm pretty close. So, I stand by my sizing. Thanks, I think I'll bring a camera next time just in case.
