"Pike Dinner"


The Story: September 2021, at 20h00 during the end of a deep dive ( 33 meters), in an old quary close to the Rhine near Strasbourg. I saw an unusual agitation around 5 meters deep. A big pike was hunting another one and caught it. My approach was very slow. I stopped. After a few minutes, the pike came to me in the dark and I shot it. At the end of this story the big pike swallowed the other one hidden in the milfoil grass.
