Yes, they are almost domesticated with all the humans around them all the time. I probably wouldn't want to approach them during the rut. 🤣They're also extremely "friendly", I've gotten close enough to pat them more than once, the trick is looking like you might have dinner.
Thank you! The juvenile pikes and mid sized perch are my favourites to photograph. The pikes because they just try to hide by staying completely still, while the perch is more curious or just not bothered. Although there are not a lot of other species to chose from here, apart from the schools of small roach this is pretty much all the larger creatures we regularly see:The Pike (Esox lucius) is a great photo.
