Aside from the formidable battle they put up on hook and line, pike also are overlooked — and largely underappreciated — by many anglers who don’t think a fish is worth eating unless it’s a walleye. They would be wrong; pike are excellent table fare, and once those pesky “Y” bones are removed, many a “walleye snob” has been convinced and converted.
It would be ideal if everyone who took to the water in a boat or an ice shack was looking for the same experience. Unfortunately, that isn't the case and, because of that wide range of wants and expectations, a change might be brewing in how Minnesota DNR Fisheries officials manage the state's northern pike lakes.
Ice conditions are great on Lake of the Woods, with 12 inches reported near Morris Point, 8 inches in Four-Mile Bay and 6 inches on the Rainy River near Clementson, Minn. Walleyes are hitting shiner minnows in 15 to 24 feet of water with good numbers of 15- to 18-inch fish reported. Several big northern pike also have been taken. Near Pine Island, consistent catches of walleyes as long as 18 inches have been caught in 16 to 22 feet of water.
