Northern Beauty

Northern Pike, Snug Harbour, Toronto IslandsDuring the winter months, the lagoons become almost sterile as all the larger fish head to deeper waters.  Crayfish, mink, beavers, and a few smaller fish can occasionally be seen going about their business under the ice, but nothing else.

As the ice finally begins to clear out, the larger fish return and get ready to spawn.  Here, a gorgeous northern pike cruises by the extreme periphery of an underwater camera, the first fish to be photographed this 2011 season.
