You won’t believe the size of lake trout that the pike in this video coughs up after being caught!
Anyone who has fished for pike before knows just how aggressive and voracious they can be. The toothy fish will attack anything that moves and will fit in their mouth. This video proves that even a fairly large lake trout is fair game for any hungry pike.
The anglers in this video land a nice pike while fishing from a boat. As they pull the pike aboard after netting it, you can see the bulge in the fish’s stomach indicating a recent meal. That recent meal wound up being a lake trout that looks to be pushing three feet long. It is pretty surprising that a pike the size of the one in the video could swallow such a large meal.
However, the more surprising thing may be that even with such a full stomach, this pike still was aggressive enough to strike the lure of the anglers in the video.
Pike truly are at the top of the food chain in most bodies of water where they lurk.
