Strange Pike

This morning I had an hour back at the gravel pits but it was very quiet with just a small perch attacking my lure. So, as the sun burnt through the clouds I headed over to the Trent. (The gravel pit pike don't seem to be very active in bright sunshine) The river looked good and was back in perfect condition after last weeks floods. I landed this hard fighting chunky pike which had a strange hole above it's gill cover!

could that hole have been caused by a Heron?

Yes, maybe a heron when it was younger, looked odd but the fish seemed healthy enough!

Could be scars from an old damage.
