    Neon Green Pike

    Have you ever seen or caught a Neon Green Pike before? I haven't.
    Cool story from the CBC about it - http://www.cbc.ca/m/news/canada/nort...-say-1.3206956

    Here is a snippet ;
    The Pike, which had a bright green body and blye throat, as well as a neon green tint across its jawline, was caught by Yellowknife resident Randy Straker on Sunday. Straker, who caught the pike in the North Arm of Great Slave Lake, released it after taking a few photos, leaving nothing but pictures, and a fishy mystery.
    Jeff Goudreau, a fish and wildlife technician and fishing guide who worked on Great Slave Lake for years, said he recognized the colouring right away.
    "I've probably caught three or four those in my life," he said. "And I know a lot of other guides in Canada in other lakes that have caught similar ones."
    According to Goudreau, the pike's unique colouring is due to a type of cell that gives all fish their colour, called chromatophore.

    I have never seen anything like that before. You sure there is no Nuclear plant around there.
