Pike info

The Pike. (Esox lucius) One of the most easily identifiable fish swimming in fresh water. With its green and cream mottled markings, elongated body and a mouth filled with over 700 teeth.

To try and catch such a predator requires some special skills and equipment that has been outlined in the sections below. We have a guide showing how to tie a wire trace (fishing without one would be foolish and will result in dead pike) We have some handy guides on unhooking and how to properly handle the fish once in the net. Finally we have a few sections that talk about the history of the pike and its evolutionary journey to the perfect predator.
