I've always enjoyed my own little internal debates, like would I rather have a 12-ounce hamburger steak for a little less price than an 8-ounce ribeye? And the same concept applies to the outdoors. Would you rather catch 15 decent perch or three big pike during a few hours of ice fishing?
They fight hard, they taste great and they’re usually willing to bite, but northern pike remain among the most overlooked and underappreciated fish among North Dakota anglers who turn up their noses at anything that’s not a walleye or perch.
State Game and Fish Department biologists conduct a variety of studies every year. The familiar ones are those that provide counts or indexes that factor into season setting and limits, and also set hunter and angler expectations.

These are good times for perch anglers on Devils Lake if results from recent Game and Fish Department population surveys are any indication. There’s a lot of young perch coming down the pike — providing they can get past the pike, walleyes and any other hungry mouths that might want to gobble them up.
