    In California we have had problems with people releasing Northern Pike into our lakes. For some reason there are idiots who either don't understand the damage they are doing or just don't give a damn.

    You're right. People think that a fish is just a fish; "what's the difference". Northern pike will eat up the smaller fish and can get over 40 pounds. They are however native here in Minnesota and in Wisconsin lakes. They look good mounted on wall (trophy size), they aren't that great for eating.
