Salty Pike

by Silja Longhurst


With the pike and I, it is a love /hate relationship. Although not to fond of its large mouth with the many large, sharp teeth, I just can’t let them be. I have to fish for them and this I do in a most unusual pike habitat – one might think…

When autumn is setting in Sweden it is time to head out to the Baltic shoreline to catch some salty pike. The Baltic Sea is known to be a big pond and although it contains saltwater it gets more and more brackish the further East and North you head. And even though Pike are a freshwater fish, they also thrive in brackish water.
