I know many people have many feelings about pike because they are so hard on fish stocks in many areas. After spending nearly 10 years in NW Alaska I see them differently, Monster Sport Fish! And they are native to that region rather than introduced.
The Noatak Flats produce many big, mean and meaty fish. I have spent many years learning the best spots and the best lures to bring these monsters out of the weeds. My son and I would take 2 -3 day trips into the Flats hooking the monsters. In the 3 day trip we would hook and land 100+ fish in the 25-40+ inch range.
