Pike Facts & Fiction

The pike is known for a deserved reputation for being the most terrible predator in our lakes, lochs and rivers. Though, at the same time as they may be certainly a exceedingly developed as well as able hunter, pike are tremendously delicate fish which have to be handled with care plus respect.

Pike do not attack or kill for pleasure, but will only consume to sustain themselves. They don't throw away energy by chasing prey that is certainly challenging to catch if an easier choice exists. Pike are scavengers, and this is certainly demonstrated perfectly by the quantity of specimen pike caught every year on dead fish baits. Frequently they are going to target weak or dying fish - that explains why flies or lures planned to imitate these are so successful.
