A natural Cannibal

The pike is a hungry and mean fish. It won’t even stand in they way of eating its own kind. Studies show that pikes eating pikes, is a natural self-regulating instinct. An instinct we as anglers can use when targeting the biggest cannibals.


Cannibalism is actually rare amongst most fish, so why is the pike an exception? Countless cases exist on pikes feeding on pikes in lakes with good amounts of food sources and a varied biodiversity. So there is no need to feed on its own species, when food is abundant. The answer lies in the nature of the pike.
