Aquitanian pike of France

Post by Danny Kurttila » Thu Apr 04, 2019 11:02 pm

Sirs;
Looking for information on Aquitanian (French) pike. Anyone have suggestions on lures, locations, waterbodies, guides? Would like to catch at least one and size isn't too important. Thanks to anyone who can offer any advice or contacts. Danny

Not much known about them it would seem, 'discovered', in 2014 . They spawn a month earlier than Northern Pike apparently. Would suggest that anything that works for Northern Pike would work for Aquitanian.
Most other types of pike are pictured on page 82 of 'Pike and the Pike Angler' by Fred Buller'.

I have asked some French connections,pardon the pun, and as John suggests it's a Pike and all methods that normally work will work for the new kid on the block!

Thank you for the replies, can anyone point me in the direction of a guide or bait shop with knowledge of these pike as far as a small public water with a decent population of these pike? Or a guide who targets these fish, that could put me on one? Thanks again.
