When Helga Bennett was fishing three weeks ago on South Dakota's Lake Ohies, she was going for "anything you could catch."

She hardly could believe when "anything" turned into a rather large fish.


Bennett hauled in not one, but two pike that tipped the scales at more than 8 pounds apiece. One, in particular, really gave her a run for her money.

"Oh, it was a fighter," Bennett said. "We had a hard time getting him in the net because he was so long."
