Northern pike gaining ground in popularity
By Kurt Krueger

THE LOWLY northern pike, that scrappy fighter that was once labeled “snake” and cursed by many as a nuisance fish with too many bones in its flesh, is finally gaining popularity as the staple fish of winter anglers.
I can’t remember another winter when more people told me of their pursuit of pike and how much they enjoy eating them. One of those anglers said he never bothered with northerns until someone showed him how to remove all the bones, including the Y-bones.
