Could be trying to get extra oxygen from the upper layers but I have never seen Pike do that before. Or was it sucking in flies, they are protein to a lot of animals so why not Pike but again would be very unusual.Another early morning trip to the river and another fruitless one, even with some advice from here I wasn’t able to find a barbel, I might do better finding hens teeth!
However, these trips are always enjoyable, I’ve seen all kinds of wildlife activity not seen before and this morning saw a very bizarre sight, a pike swam pass me with its head above the water facing skywards with its jaws wide open, I grabbed my phone to take a pic but I spooked it and sent it scurrying jaws firmly shut, is this common behaviour?
