Yellowknife Angler Catches Neon Pike On Great Slave Lake wrote a article about a Angler Catching a Neon Pike on the Great Slave Lake

Randy Straker was fishing with a friend  when he hooked into a 14-pound northern pike “We were about to grab the fish,” Straker told Moose FM. “As it flared up its gills and its mouth opened up, you could see this very fluorescent blue and green.”

“It was quite a bit lighter [in colour] with very definitive green”

“The bottom lip in particular was very fluorescent green and the tongue, the side and the top of the mouth was a combination of fluorescent blue and green.”


Straker told Moose FM parts of the back were also greener than normal. He says he’s caught pike with lighter skin and different patterns in the past but this was unlike any fish he’s ever landed.

After his friend, Craig Thomas, snapped a couple quick photos Straker released the fish back into the lake
