Northern Pike


Big, Bad, Pike 
 They're called Water Wolves;
voracious predators with mouths full of teeth that eat bass, trout, perch, sunfish, ducklings, and each other. All fish are predators, but northern pike come dressed for the part: needle like teeth, vacant eyes, serpentine shape. Their primeval morphology has changed little in 60 million years. Pike belong to the northern wilderness, where they remain most common. But stocking has extended their range south. 

Given the proper habitat, northern pike can reproduce in Illinois. In general, ponds do not provide this habitat. They should be stocked only in larger ponds and lakes that can support a top predator. Stocking rates are 5-10 per acre. Available only during the Fall harvest season.
