Pikes in the lake


#1

hello,

some footage from my last flight I like to share with you:

caught a nice pike (size about 50cm) on cam:

in the second video, i had some problems driving the rov, because there was to much friction dragging the tether through the lake weed when trying to follow the pike

cheers,
pat

The Northern Pike is a very cool fish, and in most places they live, the top of the food chain. They look and behave a lot like their distant cousin, the barracuda. More info here: http://midcurrent.com/science/distant-cousins/

That is very cool. And, learning is why I like this group, and, internet collaboration.

Silly me to think Pike was only found in our waters. I’ve grown up with Northern Pike… love the fish!
