St. Anna Archipelago, Östergötland. Sweden 2017.

The pictures to be seen are taken in summer / autumn 2017 near Söderköping, Sweden. The pike is fish number one in Sweden. In the summer you can catch the pike in the deep water, but also on reeds that are systematically fished. The pike is considered a game fish, which is rarely taken, but is usually released into its habitat. The once-in-a-lifetime “big pike” is the dream of every sportsman.

The pike is a ferocious predator, who eats conspecifics up to half his size.
