Blue Pike

Sander vitreum glaucum

Blue pike lived in Lake Erie and the Niagara River until 1964 and is now extinct. It spawned in tributaries but otherwise lived in nearshore and offshore areas. Occasional catches in Lake Ontario and the mouth of the Oswego River were considered downstream migrants.
