Observed: 8th November 2009 By: bobthebirderbobthebirder’s reputation in Fishbobthebirder’s reputation in Fish

This pike was pulled out of Radipole Lake as I walked past. The angler was only to pleased to tell me all about it and the other, much larger, pike in the lake. This one was about 18 inches long and 2.5 pounds in weight.

Did he comment on any key features that helped him identify the pike?

I didn't ask him, I could see it was a pike from its long, crocodilian mouth. Also the green, barred colouration. And the ventral position of the pelvic fins.
