Telling Pike, Pickerel and Muskellunge Apart

As before said, there is apt to be confusion regarding the identity of pike, pickerel and muskellunge. But when the fish are placed side by side it will be noted that a difference exists. There is a difference in the shape of the body, the musky being deeper in the belly, and there is a difference in the spots, the muskellunge having small black spots on a lighter ground while the pike has larger light spots on the dark ground, but there is such a difference in the markings and they are sometimes so indistinct that it is best to look for a more definite distinction. By comparing a pickerel, pike, and muskellunge it will be found that the pickerel has both cheeks and gill covers completely scaled ; the pike has scales on the cheek and the upper half only of the gill covers ; and the muskellunge has only the upper half of both cheeks and gill covers scaled. This is the surest means of identification.
