The Northern Pike derives its common name from its resemblance to the pole-weapon known as the pike. These fish are fresh water fish found in the Northern Hemisphere and typically grow to a relatively large size: the average length is about 16 to 22 inches.
Northern Pike are most often olive green, shading from yellow to white along the belly. Pike are found in sluggish streams and shallow, weedy places in lakes, as well as in cold, clear, rocky waters. They are typical ambush predators; they lie in wait for prey, holding perfectly still for long periods, and then exhibit remarkable acceleration as they strike. In short, they inhabit any water body that contains fish, but suitable places for spawning are essential for their numbers.
