Please Release

As lakes are starting to freeze, I would like to encourage everyone to release ALL pike that they catch. Especially at Harvey Gap because it will leave more fish to spawn this Spring and will increase the chance of pike fry surviving the draining. CPW is already doing enough damage in pike and walleye populations when they kill them after they net and shock them. We have AMAZING pike fisheries around here and they are trying to ruin it in favor of slimers and the endangered species that can't be brought back. I've noticed huge differences in fish size and population in Crawford since they killed 90% of the pike. Perch and Crappie numbers are through the roof, but they are all dinks. Out of the hundreds that we caught last year, only 1 was over 11". Without the pike they are becoming overpopulated and stunted. I would continue to release pike for several more years, since the killing programs show no sign of stopping anytime soon.

Glad to see you post Ben. I think the CPW will probably poison Harvey when they get the level down low enough. I think Pathway has more knowledge of it.

Well I hear the ice on Harvey is around 4" thick and people are catching pike and perch. Glad to be wrong on this one. Not sure what happened, hoping it was a shit show with a truck full of rotenone stuck in the mud on the lake shore.
