Fishrod, Do not be so sure that f&g will do nothing they are sworn to uphold the law period and until there is open season and no leght limit on Pike in the lakes that are managed for Salmon and Lake troutthe dept will uphold the law. and keeping pike under 28" long or under and more than one no matter where it is caught is just as illegal. I don't believe you will hear a word from the fish cops saying anything different on this or any other site. The state came change the law if they want (not having to wait till next year but 5 will get you ten they don't. and probably won't even change it next year either.
