Was talking to an old timer (no disrespect noted) and he was telling me back in 40's and 50's, he use to go out with his dad and catch what referred to as "Blue Pike" by the buckets full. Growing up on the shores of Lake Erie, I would occasionally hear these same stories told at the local bait shop but thought of them as more like urban legend. Has anyone ever seen or heard of "Blue Pike" along the Great Lakes?

Not anymore. I think they were a subspecies of walleye. There are still stories of some being caught every year in Canada, northern states. Due to lack of DNA evidence, nobody knows if they were a separate species, or just a walleye that had a blue color to it. There was a member on here who claimed to have caught one, and I think there's a website that has a $$$ reward if you catch one. Mops

I caught some on North Wind lake in Ontario a few years ago. Looked cool, didn’t realize what we caught until we got home. Never took any pics of them!
