It depends on size, but usually young pickeral have a bright gold stripe
down the back, where as pike do not ( could be white or off white). Young
pike usually have bluish white bars, where pickerals are goldish or yellow.
baby musky usually have dark bars on a lighter background. This is around an
inch in size. This could vary from area or water shed...
