With long slender bodies, a small dorsal fin near the tail, a broad, flattened snout, and uniques green, yellow, and creme markings make this fish one of a kind. The duckbill-like snout and sharp teeth make this fish an all-star carnivorous fish. They lie in wait for their pray and attack once they find a suitable meal. Pikes can reach lengths of more than 40 inches long but average at about 20-25 inches and weigh an average of 30 or so pounds.
