    As is true of other animals, fish can develop a variety of infections, including those of the parasitic persuasion. Some summer angler probably caught a pike that had a red spot inside its mouth along the jaw and said to himself, "Aha! That's why the darned things are so hard to catch in hot weather. They lose their teeth!" In fact, both pike and muskies continually shed old teeth and grow new ones, not just in the summer. However, the seemingly slowed-down bite this time of year can be better attributed to two things: Northerns gorge themselves on baitfish in summer, and they move to deeper, cooler water as the air temperature increases.

    Here in the upper Midwest, I often hear about how northern pike lose their teeth in the summertime and that their being sore-mouthed is what makes them so difficult to catch this time of year. Is there anything to the story or is it just an old wives' tale? -Sheila Dougherty, St. Paul, MN
