Northern pike can engulf a lure in the blink of an eye. This incredible underwater footage shows you exactly how.
Northern pike are one of the top predators in the freshwater fishing world. They grow big, can be ornery as all heck, and have an appetite that would put most competitive eaters to shame.
A cool underwater test, running a Tommy The Trout and Percy The Perch lure side-by-side, illustrates exactly how a big northern pike stalks and ultimately engulfs its meal.
I feel a pang of sympathy for the bait fish that live in this water system. It definitely is a fish-eat-fish kind of world.
