Any of the fishes of the family Esocidæ. Represented in the BWCA by a single, but prominent species, the Northern Pike ( Esox lucius), typically refered to simply as Northern. (The Walleye, sometimes erroneously referred to as "Walleyed Pike" is, in fact, a Perch). The name is short for pike-fish, a reference to the long, pointed snout resembling the pike, an iron tipped staff. Rather like the French, where brochet is the fish, but broche is a spit.
