Northern Pike, Great Lake Muskellunge, Tiger Muskellunge can grow very large and are very abundant in the great lakes. A fish of these types can
easily grow over 5 feet. So I am sure there are some lunkers out there that would eat these fish ( pike are cannabalistic, resembling fresh water
Any one of the great lakes could easily support a group of large animals. Go to any river connected to the great lakes during the late fall and spring
and these waters abound with migrating fish from the great lakes on their spawning runs. Walleye,Trout,Salmon,Carp,Catfish, Pike,Baitfish of all
kinds, etc. Some rivers get so thick the locals say you can walk across the river on the backs of fish.
I've heard stories about large Pike and/or Muskies eating people's small dogs on the shores of Lake St. Claire....dunno if it's true but you can
easily stuff a softball in the mouth of a decent sized pike. Pike are found dead with 1/2 a fish hanging from their mouth cuz they bit off more then
they could chew. So a very large fish of this size could take a nice chunk out of you since their mouths are lined with razor sharp teeth. Maybe the
"snake" is just some extremely large pike with mutated genetics that allowed it to grow way bigger then your average pike? Just a thought.
