    Jack and Walleye

    Tried out some fish photography before, here's the results.


    A Walleye cruises a long. This is a captive fish, I admit, but I figured it's a good example of this species features. Huge eyes for their nocturnal hunting, allowing them to see in the murky waters of the Red River and Lake Winnipeg (but they're found in most of Our other water bodies). This one is about 2', most Manitobans don't know this because they're so heavily fished, but they can get quite a bit bigger than that!

    Here's probably my favourite northern fish: the Northern Pike, or jack fish as we call it here. A streamlined predator of all our aquatic life (and some non aquatic stuff as well).

    This pic illustrates the body, so well suited for camouflage and speed:ImageUploadedByTapatalk1387166784.230280.jpg

    They are, definitely one of my favourite boreal fish. I have some betting pictures of sine larger one I caught last spring if you want to see?

    This is probably the best picture I have, perfectly illustrates the body shape, colour used for camouflage. This fish is about 35" but they can get twice that size where they aren't fished heavily.
