Pike have long been the fish of choice for me.  Having lived in Alaska for a while I have seen where pike and trout live together without any problems and both grow to state size proportions.  I agree that they are very good tasting fish to eat and man are they fun to catch.  I would like to see them in more of our waters although sparingly in some.  Some years ago I caught a 42 incher out of Spinney.  The fish weighed 16 pounds.  A fish that length in most waters might tip the scales over 30.  I hate to see any starving fish and pike is an easy underdog to root for in this trout state.  I think what is worse than pike getting into various waters is situations like the perch at Blue Mesa.  Perhaps the Blue could use a few good pike to help with that problem.  Pike and perch occupy the same depths.  I bet pike could do a better job cleaning them up than the macks do.
