Grundle, I was just pondering the riskiness of catching a pike by the mouth, with the teeth and all, do you think this is perhaps a risky move by the gentleman with his arm in the ice?

I would think so myself. I know I wouldn't do it. Was that blood on his finger? If so must of scrap teeth or hook maybe.

J francho or anyone else who catches them- does the icy cold water change their aggression any or are they not as aggressive their made out to be? I only caught pickerels and wouldn't take a chance being bit by them.

I catch pike all the time there agressive towards lures and such the bigger ones I get which ain't that big 32" tops are more calm and relaxed like u see on tv. The small dink ones are fiesty out of the water and in but not so much id be scared of them I swim and wade in waters loaded with them even tried grabbing them from the shallows when younger they spoke easy and never try biting my toes or anything even when dangling in the water over the canoe. Now iv had pike come grab lures dangling over the edge not even in the water but never fingers or toes.

I don't know, but the lakers I've caught through the ice (very limited experience) are slow, but still powerful.

I can't see the video, blocked here at work. What's a little blood?

Well, Northern Pike, or Esox lucius, can grow to great sizes. The largest ever caught was 68 pounds and they are equipped with backwards facing teeth that can get to be 3 inches or longer, making them a great predator in waters located in the northern hemisphere. In this video in question, a gentleman decides to stick his hand in the hole to pull the specimen out. This poses great risks. It has been shown that in the cold winter months northern pike can be quite lethargic in nature, but will always defend themselves when in danger. This was quite the large specimen of Pike, and one could estimate his teeth were close to 3 inches and razor sharp. That means that when grasped on to flesh, even prying the fishes mouth open will still cause serious damage. Judging by the location of the catch we can guesstimate that they are at least an hour away from the nearest hospital, meaning he would have more than enough time to bleed out and die. We can also assume that this fish was indeed caught and not caught by dangling ones fingers to entice the fish because they are known to spend their winters approximately 6-9 meters below their normal depth and a fish that size to come to the surface would be highly unlikely. The finsherman in the video took great carelessness with underestimating the fish and risks involved in pulling him in barehanded. So we can conclude two things: that this was an extremely risky maneuver by the fisher man and that Russians are completely badass.

bull$*!#. there is no northern pike with 3in long teeth. Heck it would probably be close to 1in if that
