Watch as the pike strikes at fishermen, fish, ducks and pets, earning it’s nickname as the freshwater barracuda.
Watch as the notorious predator of freshwater lakes, the pike, strikes terror into fishermen, pets and wild animals in this video. All that is missing from these clips is the theme from Jaws as the toothy fish moves in for the attack.
The pike is a great game fish and it is a favorite of anglers in the U.S. and Canada.
I catch some mighty big ones with deep-water trolling with Rapalas and Rebel lures, however there is a reason I keep long-nosed pliers to get the hooks out before I release the fish and keep my hands faraway from their needle like teeth.
Unfortunately, anglers that are less careful have definitely seen their share of injuries and despite knowing the rules, can get caught up in the moment and actually act nonchalant.
