I bet maybe it is a chain pickerel. Both species are quite unusual in Tennessee, but pickerel more common than pike... and actually I've never heard of a "confirmed" pike in Tennessee. Look at this web page.... pictures of chain pickerel and pike both. Maybe you can tell which it was.

If you catch another one, mail it to RSimms he can identify it for you. \:D Don't bother with dry ice or anything like that just lay it out on the bank for at least a day before you mail it.
