Anglers familiar with pike will tell you that this fish will bite just about anything—and do so with gusto. Equipped with sharp teeth, high speed, and aggressive predatory instincts, pike are not afraid of much. In this video, Savage Gear and underwaterireland showcase a collection of some of the most jaw-dropping pike attacks caught on film.
When they aren’t biting lures, pike will eat anything from smaller fish, squirrels, sand pipers, and even others of their own species if available prey is scarce. Biologists say that the fearless behavior of pike can actually be attributed to a rather small brain, which is about 1/1305 of its total body weight. As a consequence, pike believe just about everything is edible.
