The Northern Pikes latin name, Esox Lucius, translates to water wolf, an obvious reference to the predatory habits of this fish as they have great hunting skills. They typically ambush their prey attacking out of nowhere, usually striking from the side and will literally feed on anything, even their own.
Due to the colder waters of Reindeer Lake, Northern Pike and the other fish typically live longer than in the south. With the lake’s vast size, endless amounts of weedy shoreline and Reindeer’s catch and release policy, Arctic Lodges is able to produce some of the largest northern pike in the world.
