Was Oxfordshire’s River Cherwell once home to the biggest British pike of all time?

 

Well, according to THIS feature in the Daily Mail it may well have been! What do you think?

This is the caption to one of the photographs: "The northern pike, or esox lucius, is a freshwater game fish." . . . . oh, really?

In the same caption it also states 'The skull discovered by the River Cherwell is thought to have weighed 50lbs':confused: Still if it's in the Mail it must be true:wh Jerry

I've been plagued and mashed up by several pike in the Cherwell as well as other rivers; I've often seen the remains of pike chucked on the sides. Don't think I need to say what I think happened to them, but washed up in a flood, now that's a good un:rolleyes: maybe that's why the fish stocks are so low - we are always having floods:eek:

Ah, so that's what caused the decline of barbel..... I guess it's only a matter of time before some do-gooder will start an introduction programme of these not-so-little beauties: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNBsnP6gnFM]Giant Otter Manu (Nutrias Gigantes) - YouTube[/ame]
