Hungry Pike Eats Baby Duck

Published on:

While this doesn’t have much to do with ultralight fishing, it’s an interesting video I’d like to share with you. It’s a video of a pike ambushing and eating a duckling. This video is a little sad, but it shows the grim reality of predator vs. prey.

Larger trout, bass, pike, and muskies are known to eat small mammals and birds that find their way into the water. I’ve heard of trout picking off mice that fall in the water and pike are known to snag a duckling or two once in a while (like in the video). Some manufacturers even make lures to look like ducklings and rodents to take advantage of this.

Have you seen anything like this with your own eyes? I sure haven’t. Have you caught fish on duckling or rodent lures? Let me know.

  1. I’ve caught a 5 lb bass on a small black soft plastic top water mouse lure in the creek near my house. Never seen one of the duck lures let alone catch something with them.

    • 5 lbs? Good sized bass if you ask me. So, looks like the mouse lures do work. I just watched a video on YouTube of trout taking large mouse flies in a river somewhere in Alaska. Amazing to watch.

      I have stumbled upon a fuzzy duck lure at a tackle shop in the past. Do a Google search and you should be able to find them online for sure.

      Thanks for commenting Eddie.
