What happens when a pike swims off with your lure?

Experimenting with Northern Pike being able to dislodge lures from different areas of their mouths…

Do you want to see a step in the right fishing direction?

Well the following link is an article done on experimenting with Northern Pike being able to dislodge lures from different areas of their mouths. This, and studies like this, are what the world of fishing needs.

I just read yet another article this week from an “anti” company stating yet again their opinion as to why we shouldn’t fish. I won’t bore you with that one only because I don’t want to promote them.

Please read this and spread the word!

  1. Interesting article indeed. I am not surprised at the pike’s ability to throw a hook in this fashion. Over the years I have been told of many such experiences pertaining to this phenomenon, one of which comes to mind.

    Many deep sea anglers in their quest to release large fish without stressing them, have taken up the practice of cutting their line and leaving the hook embedded in the fish’s mouth. This may sound somewhat cruel to angling neophytes, but in fact the fish’s body fluids can actually dissolve the hook or aid in working it free in time.

    These creatures of the marine world like all animals, have an incredible urge for self-preservation. This is just one aspect of survival.
