Kyle Anthony Chester sent us this image of a beautiful “silver” pike he caught while fishing in Prince Albert National Park, Saskatchewan.
Pike can come in different color variations and this is a good example of one that is almost silver. Probably due to genetic adjusting to it’s open-water environment. Many animals, including fish can “evolve” into external color patterns that help them feed more effectively by blending in with their environment. No wonder pike that love to live/feed in heavy weeds are often bright green/stripes in coloration, they blend right in with the weeds around them!
