Float Plus Pike

Float Plus & Pike

The pike is perhaps the best known predatory fish in the Netherlands and one of the most popular angling sports here. Pike can grow up to one and a half metres in length and be up to 15 years old. The fish is easily recognisable by its elongated shape and impressive mouth full of teeth. It prefers clear water because it is a line-of-sight hunter. They look for places where they can surprise the prey fish, such as reed beds, bridge piers, culverts or waterway crossings.

This strong native fish can cause a lot of action when biting. Thomas Sintobin explains more about it in the following film.
